Chin, Huan; Chew, Cheng Meng; Lim, Hooi Lian; Thien, Lei Mee – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2022
Cognitive Diagnostic Assessment (CDA) is an alternative assessment which can give a clear picture of pupils' learning process and cognitive structures to education stakeholders so that appropriate instructional strategies can be designed to tailored pupils' needs. Coincide with this function, the Ordered Multiple-Choice (OMC) items were…

Kara, Serpil; Kingir, Sevgi – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2022
This study aimed to determine the effect of the model-based science writing heuristic (M-SWH) approach on students' conceptual understanding and construction of model-based argumentations in elementary school science. Participants (N = 107) were students enrolled in 4 fourth-grade classes of a public elementary school. Two classes were assigned as…

Leung, Jessica Shuk Ching – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2022
The purpose of this study was to investigate how 22 preservice science teachers' (PSTs') beliefs about teaching socioscientific issues (SSI) changed after experiencing SSI instruction and reflection from both a learner's perspective and a teacher's perspective during a 12-week initial teacher education course. The study also explored the learning…

Maass, Katja; Sorge, Stefan; Romero-Ariza, Marta; Hesse, Alice; Straser, Oliver – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2022
The world is facing severe global challenges such as climate change, food security, rising migration, social justice, or the current corona crisis. In these times, citizenship education seems more important than ever. How can this citizenship education relate to mathematics and science learning? The research project MaSDiV (Supporting mathematics…

Xu, Lihua – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2022
Representations constitute an important part of chemistry knowledge. This paper revisits the notion of the term, symbolic, in the chemistry triangle proposed by Johnstone using the theoretical lens of social semiotics. In doing so, this paper proposes a framework of chemistry learning that highlights representational re-description and…

Capobianco, Brenda M.; Radloff, Jeffrey; Clingerman, Jenna – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2022
The role of engineering in science and mathematics education continues to emerge as a contributing factor to improving STEM education. Efforts across different countries include the integration of engineering in K-12 curriculum, after school programs, and inservice teacher professional development. Only recently have science teacher educators…

Anastasakis, Marinos; Lerman, Stephen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2022
Research exploring undergraduates' tool preferences in tertiary mathematics is currently limited. In this paper, we explore the tools mathematics and engineering students use when studying mathematics and the ways undergraduates combine these tools. Results from our survey (N = 628) showed that students in our sample use mostly their notes, the…

Demiray, Esra; Isiksal-Bostan, Mine; Saygi, Elif – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2022
Toulmin's argumentation model is an effective tool in the description of one step of an argument. However, there is a need to consider more than this model to portray a comprehensive argumentation process. The purpose of the study is to investigate types of global argumentation structures that emerged while prospective middle school mathematics…

Schliemann, Analúcia D.; Carraher, David W.; Teixidor-i-Bigas, Montserrat – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2022
We report on a teacher development program aimed at improving mathematics teaching and learning from grades 5-9. The 18-month largely online program arose from a partnership of mathematics education researchers, mathematicians, physicists, and nine school districts. The program employed functions as a lens to reinterpret and interconnect content…

Vesga-Bravo, Grace-Judith; Angel-Cuervo, Zaida-Mabel; Chacón-Guerrero, Gerardo-Antonio – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2022
The present research inquired about beliefs of in-service and pre-service mathematics teachers as well as the analysis and comparison between the beliefs that they declare, argue, and reflect in their lessons plans, and the use of those beliefs in their practical exercises. Five pre-service teachers studying a Bachelor's in Mathematics, and three…

Yan, Xiaoheng; Marmur, Ofer; Zazkis, Rina – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2022
In this paper, we examine mathematicians' views on the value of advanced mathematics for secondary mathematics teachers. The data comprise semi-structured interviews with 24 mathematicians from 10 universities. The findings indicate that the value of advanced mathematics courses for prospective secondary mathematics teachers lies in their…

Zhang, Fa; Bae, Christine L.; Broda, Michael – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2022
This study investigated student and classroom level variables related to student science achievement by using the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2015 dataset. Multilevel modeling was applied in this secondary analysis to examine how science self-concept, school relatedness, and science teaching quality predicted…

Martínez-Sierra, Gustavo; Arellano-García, Yurdia; Hernández-Moreno, Antonia – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2022
Little is known about discrete emotions experienced by mathematics teachers beyond mathematics anxiety in elementary school. In order to fill this gap, the aim of this research is to identify emotions, and their triggering situations, experienced by secondary school Mexican mathematics teachers inside and outside of the classroom. This research…

Siani, Merav; Yarden, Anat – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2022
The conflict between acceptance and disapproval of evolution has led to obstacles in its teaching and learning. Other difficulties, such as both teachers' and students' alternative perceptions, student maturity in the face of learning this complicated topic, and teachers' gaps in evolution knowledge, add to the difficulties in teaching and…

Gridos, Panagiotis; Avgerinos, Evgenios; Mamona-Downs, Joanna; Vlachou, Roza – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2022
The present study aims to examine mathematical creativity in students' work in geometry. Research conducted was based on two aspects: (a) examining the influence of geometrical figure apprehension on the production of multiple solutions and (b) how the necessity to construct auxiliary lines in the given shape promotes the production of multiple…
