Koyunkaya, Melike Yigit – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
Students need to construct strong knowledge of angles as well as relationships between angles and side lengths in a triangle to succeed in geometry. Although many researchers pointed out the importance of angles and angle-related concepts, students and teachers have had limited knowledge of these concepts. This study is a part of a larger study,…

Akerson, Valarie L.; Carter, Ingrid S.; Park Rogers, Meredith A.; Pongsanon, Khemmawadee – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
In this mixed methods study, the researchers developed a video-based measure called a "Prediction Assessment" to determine preservice elementary teachers' abilities to predict students' scientific reasoning. The instrument is based on teachers' need to develop pedagogical content knowledge for teaching science. Developing a knowledge…

Yilmaz, Rezan; Argun, Ziya – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
Mathematical abstraction is an important process in mathematical thinking. Also, visualization is a strong tool for searching mathematical problems, giving meaning to mathematical concepts and the relationships between them. In this paper, we aim to investigate the role of visualizations in mathematical abstraction through a case study on five…

O'Byrne, W. Ian; Radakovic, Nenad; Hunter-Doniger, Tracey; Fox, Madison; Kern, Reggie; Parnell, Stephanie – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
In recent years, tablets have been shown to serve as incredible teaching tools in classrooms around the world. In mathematics education, divergent thinking, creativity, and play may play a key role in formation of adaptive thinking and math achievement. This qualitative, participatory action research investigated the use of an instructional model…

Evagorou, Maria; Mauriz, Blanca Puig – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
Socioscientific issues are ill-structured problems that involve moral, ethical, and financial aspects, and lack clear-cut solutions. Teaching socioscientific issues necessarily puts a demand on teachers to draw on knowledge stemming from other domains, and to also appreciate, and present to the students the societal aspects of science. For new…

Lambert, Julie L.; Bleicher, Robert E. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
Findings of this study suggest that scientific argumentation can play an effective role in addressing complex socioscientific issues (i.e. global climate change). This research examined changes in preservice teachers' knowledge and perceptions about climate change in an innovative undergraduate-level elementary science methods course. The…

Aydeniz, Mehmet; Bilican, Kader; Kirbulut, Zubeyde Demet – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
The purpose of this study was to explore Pre-service Elementary Science Teachers' (PSTs) conceptual understanding of Particulate Nature of Matter (PNM) through a three-tier diagnostic test. Participants were 215 PSTs from Turkey. Data consisted of participants' responses to the Particulate Nature of Matter Test (PNMT). The PNMT consists of…

Zhou, George; Xu, Judy – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
Inquiry-based teaching has become the most recommended approach in science education for a few decades; however, it is not a common practice yet in k-12 school classrooms. In order to prepare future teachers to teach science through inquiry, a Microteaching Lesson Study (MLS) approach was employed in our science methods courses. Instead of asking…

Kubar, Aysenur; Cakoroglu, Erdinc – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
This study aims to reveal prospective middle school mathematics teachers' knowledge regarding the possible misconceptions and/or errors of middle school students in describing integers. In addition to this, it aims to reveal the possible reasons underlying these from the perspective of prospective teachers. Data was qualitatively collected from 38…

Zeybek, Zulfiye – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
This study aimed at investigating two main issues related to counterexample construction: the appropriateness of counterexamples and the types of arguments that are often used when refuting a false conjecture. Twelve pre-service elementary teachers who demonstrated a wide range of reasoning skills participated in this study. The data revealed…

Beschorner, Beth; Kruse, Jerrid – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
This study explored pre-service teachers' use of Hutchison and Woodward's (2014) Technology Integration Planning Cycle for instructional lesson planning in literacy. Ten pre-service teachers enrolled in a course entitled Literacy Assessment and Instruction II participated. As part of the course, each pre-service teacher developed and delivered…

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…

Metin, Duygu; Ertepinar, Hamide – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
The purposes of the present study are to elicit pre-service elementary science teachers' scientific and pseudoscientific beliefs about earthquake and to make inferences about their understandings of science. Although the subject of earthquake is not a pseudoscientific area, some pseudoscientific beliefs related to earthquake were used in this…
