Kenney, Rachael; An, Tuyin; Kim, Sung-Hee; Uhan, Nelson A.; Yi, Ji Soo; Shamsul, Aiman – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In linear programming, many students find it difficult to translate a verbal description of a problem into a valid mathematical model. To better understand this, we examine the existing characteristics of college engineering students' errors across linear programming (LP) problems. We examined textbooks to identify the types of problems typically…

Sánchez Aguilar, Mario; Castaneda, Apolo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
We report on a study focused on identifying how the notion of "the mathematician" is constructed in lower secondary Mexican mathematics textbooks. To conduct the study, we adopted a Foucauldian approach that allows us to identify the way in which the notion of the mathematician is constructed but also to delineate the possible effects…

Yeo, Lian-Ming; Tzeng, Yuh-Tsuen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The present study attempted to replicate the previous results of Hu et al. (Learning and Instruction 35:85-93 2015) and further examined the boundary condition of tracing gesture whether its cognitive effect is merely comparable with other attention-guiding means, i.e., textual attention cueing, in two different learning tasks in nature. In two…

Edsand, Hans-Erik; Broich, Tobias – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This paper empirically investigates to what extent environmental education (EE) at school can explain variation in environmental literacy of 15-year-olds in Colombia, while controlling for several other student- and school-level confounding factors. We use a two-level nested model, where the individual observations are nested within schools. Based…

Jafer, Yaqoub J. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study aimed to identify misconceptions of 1st year and 4th year pre-service science teachers about the greenhouse effect. A questionnaire developed by Boyes and Stanisstreet ("Journal of Science Education and Technology," 2(4), 541-557, 1993) was administered to 163 pre-service science teachers in the College of Education at Kuwait…

Takeuchi, Haruka; Shinno, Yusuke – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study is aimed at comparing the content in mathematics textbooks from Japan and England, focusing on symmetry and transformations at the lower secondary level. We adopted the concept of praxeology, a main construct of the Anthropological Theory of the Didactic (ATD). Using the ATD framework, our approach regarded textbooks as an empirical…

Sormunen, Kati; Juuti, Kalle; Lavonen, Jari – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Supporting students' active participation in maker-centered project-based learning (PBL) can be challenging in inclusive classes. The aim of this study was to support students' active participation in cooperative team via teacher-directed reflective discussions during an inclusive, maker-centered PBL unit. The study was conducted during the…

Gao, Jie – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Understanding the development of mathematics self-efficacy has important implications. Based on Bandura's four sources of self-efficacy, most previous studies mainly examined whether the sources predicted or correlated with mathematics self-efficacy, which might have oversimplified the underlying mechanism of self-efficacy development. This study…

Arican, Muhammet; Kuzu, Okan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study investigates preservice middle school mathematics teachers' understanding of statistics and probability and provides a cognitive diagnostic assessment of their strengths and weaknesses on these subjects. A statistical reasoning test that included 15 multiple-choice and 5 open-ended items was developed from the perspective of the…

Hamdan Alghamdi, Amani K. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study aimed to reveal the extent to which citizenship values are included in Saudi Arabian elementary science textbooks, which teachers have to use. The content of six grades 4 to 6 textbooks used in the first and second semesters was analyzed with a focus on three themes related to citizenship values: cultural, social, and political…

Wan, Yanlan; Bi, Hualin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Science and technology play an important role in the development of human society. Thus, science education should reflect the trend of social development and prepare students to think about and make wise decisions on major social topics related to science. As an aspect of the societal dimension of science, socio-scientific topics (SSTs) have a…

Laine, Anu; Ahtee, Maija; Näveri, Liisa – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The aim of this article was to determine the factors in teachers' actions that could explain differences in the emotional atmosphere of primary school classrooms. Based on pupils' drawings about their mathematics lessons, we analyzed both the pupils' and their teachers' actions, including pupils requesting help, sitting alone, and talking about…

Andrà, Chiara; Brunetto, Domenico; Parolini, Nicola; Verani, Marco – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This paper aims at contributing to the debate in Mathematics Education about the understanding of the dynamics of students' group interactions by proposing an interpretative lens, which defines four modes of participating in a group on the basis of different kinds of utterances, gestures, postures, and glances that each student makes. We apply…

Shapira-Lishchinsky, Orly; Zavelevsky, Erez – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study aims to explore the different appearances of parental interactions based on principal, teacher, and student reports of the 8th grade Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study 2011 assessments in Israel and how the appearances of parental interactions relate to math achievements. We conducted a multilevel SEM on 147…

Turan, Gurbet Yeliz; Köklükaya, Ayse Nesibe; Yildirim, Ezgi Güven – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study aims to investigate the effects of educational games, while teaching the unit of matter and heat, utilized on students and the remarks of the students on the process. The research model called mixed method, in which both quantitative and qualitative research methods are used together, had been applied. The research group consisted of…
