Thompson, Virginia L.; McDowell, Yonghong L. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2019
A research study was conducted at an undergraduate college, comparing student experiences and successes in a mathematics course offered fully online, blended and face-to-face. In online courses, students enjoy the flexibility of learning at their own pace, not having to travel to school, as well as having consistent access to courses through a web…

Lachapelle, Cathy P.; Brennan, Robert T. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
Engineers and policymakers have expressed concern that too few students enter the engineering pipeline. This has led to many efforts to engage students in engineering in after-school programs, summer programs, and more recently, in school curricula. The expectation is that, through these efforts, greater numbers of more demographically diverse…

Grohs, Jacob R.; Knight, David B.; Young, Glenda D.; Soledad, Michelle M. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
Situated in the second year of an engineering curriculum, undergraduate engineering mechanics courses represent a significant barrier to persistence in engineering. This study seeks to inform and improve these educational environments by examining academic performance paths over time in a course and explore how students in each path compare in the…

Hodgson, Theodore R.; Cunningham, Abby; McGee, Daniel; Kinne, Lenore J.; Murphy, Teri J. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
There is a growing evidence that flipped classrooms are associated with increased levels of student engagement, as compared to engagement in "traditional" settings. Much of this research, however, occurs in post-secondary classrooms and is based upon self-reported engagement data. This study seeks to extend existing flipped classroom…

Akayuure, Peter; Asiedu-Addo, S. K.; Alebna, Victor – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
Whereas origami is said to have pedagogical benefits in geometry education, research is inclusive about its effect on spatial ability and geometric knowledge among preservice teachers. The study investigated the effect of origami instruction on these aspects using pretest posttest quasi-experiment design. The experimental group consisted of 52…

Platas, Linda M.; Ketterlin-Geller, Leanne R.; Sitabkhan, Yasmin – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
This paper describes the development and intended uses of the Early Grades Mathematics Assessment (EGMA), which measures essential early mathematical knowledge and skills that are foundational to more sophisticated mathematical abilities, predictive of later achievement, and teachable. Administering the EGMA can provide policy makers,…

Girit, Dilek; Akyuz, Didem – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
Studies reveal that students as well as teachers have difficulties in understanding and learning of decimals. The purpose of this study is to investigate students' as well as pre-service teachers' solution strategies when solving a question that involves an estimation task for the value of a decimal number on the number line. We also examined the…

Shumway, Jessica F.; Moyer-Packenham, Patricia S.; Baker, Joseph M.; Westenskow, Arla; Anderson-Pence, Katie L.; Tucker, Stephen I.; Boyer-Thurgood, Jennifer; Jordan, Kerry E. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between instructional modality used for teaching fractions and third- and fourth-grade students' responses and strategies to open-response fraction items. The participants were 155 third-grade and 200 fourth-grade students from 17 public school classrooms. Students within each class were…

Winn, Kathleen M.; Mi Choi, Kyong; Hand, Brian – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
STEM education is a current focus of many educators and policymakers and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) with the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSSM) are foundational documents driving curricular and instructional decision making for teachers and students in K-8 classrooms across the United States. Thus, practitioners…

Erdogan, Niyazi; Stuessy, Carol L. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2015
This study aims to generate a conceptual framework for specialized Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) schools. To do so, we focused on literature and found specialized STEM schools have existed for over 100 years and recently expanded nationwide. The current perception for these schools can be described as unique environments…

Schleigh, Sharon Price; Clark, Douglas B.; Menekse, Muhsin – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2015
Although interview formats support rich data collection in conceptual change studies, interview formats limit sample sizes. This study explores the possibility of using constructed-response formats as an alternative or supplement for collecting similarly rich data across larger pools of subjects in conceptual change studies. While research in…

Holm, Jennifer; Kajander, Ann – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2015
Professional learning groups are becoming a popular form of teacher development in mathematics. Due to the personal nature of the groups, as well as differences in initial beliefs and capacity, teachers may respond differently to such opportunities. A total of 14 teachers were observed over a three-year period, and two contrasting participants,…

Van Eaton, Grant; Clark, Douglas B.; Smith, Blaine E. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2015
Students playing digital learning games in the classroom rarely play alone, even in digital games that are ostensibly "single-player" games. This study explores the patterns of physics reasoning that emerge in face-to-face and online forum collaboration while students play a physics-focused educational game in their classroom. We…
