Delen, Ibrahim; Krajcik, Joseph – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
In this study, we explored how a teacher used a new mobile application that enables students to collect data inside and outside the classroom, and then use the data to create scientific explanations by using claim-evidence-reasoning framework. Previous technologies designed to support scientific explanations focused on how these programs improve…

Priemer, Burkhard; Hellwig, Julia – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Estimating measurement uncertainties is important for experimental scientific work. However, this is very often neglected in school curricula and teaching practice, even though experimental work is seen as a fundamental part of teaching science. In order to call attention to the relevance of measurement uncertainties, we developed a comprehensive…

Hilton, Annette – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Research on the impact of the integration of technologies such as iPads on primary students' attitudes and engagement in mathematics is limited. Further, there have been claims that teachers' pedagogical choices can strongly influence the effectiveness of iPads for engaging students in mathematics. This paper presents an investigation of the…

Yang, Kai-Lin; Li, Jian-Lin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study investigates one issue related to reading mathematical texts by presenting a two-dimensional framework for assessing reading comprehension of geometric construction texts. The two dimensions of the framework were formulated by modifying categories of reading literacy and drawing on key elements of geometric construction texts. Three…

Kulgemeyer, Christoph – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The "expert blind spot" (EBS) hypothesis implies that even some experts with a high content knowledge might have problems in science communication because they are using the structure of the content rather than their addressee's prerequisites as an orientation. But is that also true for students? Explaining science to peers is a crucial…

Kilic, Hulya – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
A 14-week course program was designed to investigate pre-service teachers' noticing skills and scaffolding practices. Six pre-service teachers were matched with a pair of sixth grade students to observe and scaffold students' mathematical understanding while they were working on the given tasks. Data was collected through pre-service teachers' own…

Arican, Muhammet – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The purpose of this study was to investigate eight preservice middle and high school mathematics teachers' solution strategies when solving single and multiple proportion problems. Real-world missing-value word problems were used in an interview setting to collect information about preservice teachers' (PSTs) reasoning about proportional…

Taylan, Rukiye Didem – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study explored whether pre-service teachers' (PSTs') lesson analysis skills during a teacher education course in the country of Turkey were related to their skills of lesson planning. PSTs' lesson analysis skills during fieldwork were assessed by their attention to and interpretation of student thinking and learning, and how it is influenced…

Lotter, Christine R.; Thompson, Stephen; Dickenson, Tammiee S.; Smiley, Whitney F.; Blue, Genine; Rea, Mary – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study examined changes in middle school teachers' beliefs about inquiry, implementation of inquiry practices, and self-efficacy to teach science through inquiry after participating in a year-long professional development program. The professional development model design was based on Bandura's (1986) social cognitive theory of learning and…
