Dogan, Hamide – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Many studies mentioned the deductive nature of Mathematical Induction (MI) proofs but almost all fell short in explaining its potential role in the formation of the misconceptions reported in the literature. This paper is the first of its kind looking at the misconceptions from the perspective of the abstract of the deductive logic from one's…

King, Nicola; Van der Touw, Thomas; Spowart, Lucy; Lawlor, Craig – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
There has been an increasing movement towards the introduction of inquiry based learning in undergraduate physiology laboratories. Students can however find this challenging when there is a sudden transition from traditional didactic practicals to full inquiry based activities. One reason for this could be the students' perceptions about the…

Moseley, Christine; Bonner, Emily; Ibey, Marilyn – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This study investigated the use of Guided Student-Generated Questioning (GSGQ) as a metacognitive instructional strategy to increase chemistry achievement and self-efficacy of elementary preservice teachers. The Chemistry Self-Efficacy Scale (CSES), modified from the Biology Self-Efficacy Scale (BSES),was used to determine elementary preservice…

Berman, Abraham; Shvartsman, Ludmila – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
In this paper we describe an experiment in a linear algebra course. The aim of the experiment was to promote the students' understanding of the studied concepts focusing on their definitions. It seems to be a given that students should understand concepts' definitions before working substantially with them. Unfortunately, in many cases they do…

Bazelais, Paul; Lemay, David John; Doleck, Tenzin – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Research has suggested that achievement is not solely based on the cognitive abilities of the learner, but rather on the combination of cognitive ability and personality traits. This paper explores how grit affects student academic performance and success in first-year college physics students in the context of a Quebec Collège d'enseignement…

Wegner, Claas; Issak, Nicole; Tesch, Katharina; Zehne, Carolin – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The following article presents a concept of a science club which was developed by two master's students as a part of their thesis and which has been developed and improved ever since. The extra-curricular concept emphasises pupils' individuality through focusing on problem based leaning, station learning, and mixed age groups. Having joined the…

Contel, Teresa Muñoz; Ferrandis, Ignacio García; Ferrandis, Xavier García – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Light pollution has emerged with the industrial development in recent decades. It is becoming a significant environmental issue for cities today and it will probably become more important in the near future. However, very little research has been carried out on this issue in the field of science teaching, despite there being a general agreement…

Brez, Caitlin C.; Allen, Jessica J. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Currently, few studies have addressed public opinions regarding math education. The current study surveyed adults in a Midwestern town in the United States to assess opinions regarding math and math education. Overall, we found that adults believe that math is useful and that math education is important. We found that parents who currently have a…
