Zajkov, Oliver; Gegovska-Zajkova, Sonja; Mitrevski, Boce – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
A physics textbook for the 8th grade was analyzed, in particular the section on the interaction between electric current and magnetic field. The textbook is written in the Macedonian language, but is translated into Albanian, Serbian, and Turkish, which provides an opportunity to influence a larger population of children, in a larger ethnic area.…

Jao, Limin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
For pre-service teachers (PSTs) who have been exposed to traditional approaches, teacher education courses can be a revelatory experience in their development as educators. This study explores if Canadian upper elementary/lower secondary (grades 4-10) PSTs change their beliefs about mathematics teaching as a result of taking a mathematics methods…

Höffler, Tim Niclas; Bonin, Victoria; Parchmann, Ilka – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Competitions are discussed as a measure to foster students' interest, especially for highly gifted and talented students. In the current study, participants of a cognitive school competition in science were compared to non-participants of the same age group (14-15) who either did not participate in any competition or who participated in a…

Tchoshanov, Mourat; Cruz, Maria D.; Huereca, Karla; Shakirova, Kadriya; Shakirova, Liliana; Ibragimova, Elena N. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This mixed methods study examined an association between cognitive types of teachers' mathematical content knowledge and students' performance in lower secondary schools (grades 5 through 9). Teachers (N = 90) completed the Teacher Content Knowledge Survey (TCKS), which consisted of items measuring different cognitive types of teacher knowledge.…

Duncan, Ravit Golan; Castro-Faix, Moraima; Choi, Jinnie – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The Framework for Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards in the USA emphasize learning progressions (LPs) that support conceptual coherence and the gradual building of knowledge over time. In the domain of genetics there are two independently developed alternative LPs. In essence, the difference between the two progressions…

Ayalon, Michal; Even, Ruhama – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This study examines how students' opportunities to engage in argumentative activity are shaped by the teacher, the class, and the mathematical topic. It compares the argumentative activity between two classes taught by the same teacher using the same textbook and across two beginning algebra topics--investigating algebraic expressions and…

Dogbey, James – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This study employed content analysis to examine 3 popular middle-grades mathematics curricula in the USA on the support they provide for teachers to implement concepts associated with variables in school mathematics. The results indicate that each of the 3 curricula provides some type of support for teachers, but in a varied amount and quality.…

Huang, Po-Sheng; Chen, Hsueh-Chih – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The main purpose of this study was to examine possible gender differences in how junior high school students integrate printed texts and diagrams while solving science problems. We proposed the response style hypothesis and the spatial working memory hypothesis to explain possible gender differences in the integration process. Eye-tracking…
