Budiman, Zainol Badli; Halim, Lilia; Mohd Meerah, Subahan; Osman, Kamisah – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
Three teaching methods were compared in this study, namely a Cognitive Conflict Management Module (CCM) that is infused into Cognitive Acceleration through Science Education (CASE), (Module A) CASE without CCM (Module B) and a conventional teaching method. This study employed a pre- and post-test quasi-experimental design using non-equivalent…

Sarkar, Mahbub; Corrigan, Deborah – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
In line with a current global trend, junior secondary science education in Bangladesh aims to provide science education for all students to enable them to use their science learning in everyday life. This aim is consistent with the call for scientific literacy, which argues for engaging students with science in everyday life. This paper…

Zwiep, Susan Gomez; Benken, Babette M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2013
This paper examines upper elementary and middle school teachers' learning of mathematics and science content, how their perceptions of their disciplines and learning of that discipline developed through content-rich learning experiences, and the differences and commonalities of the teachers' learning experiences relative to content domain. This…

Jen, Tsung-Hau; Lee, Che-Di; Chien, Chin-Lung; Hsu, Ying-Shao; Chen, Kuan-Ming – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2013
Based on the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study 2007 study and a follow-up national survey, data for 3,901 Taiwanese grade 8 students were analyzed using structural equation modeling to confirm a social-relation-based affection-driven model (SRAM). SRAM hypothesized relationships among students' perceived social relationships in…

Tsitsipis, Georgios; Stamovlasis, Dimitrios; Papageorgiou, George – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
In this study, the effect of 3 cognitive variables such as logical thinking, field dependence/field independence, and convergent/divergent thinking on some specific students' answers related to the particulate nature of matter was investigated by means of probabilistic models. Besides recording and tabulating the students' responses, a combination…

Wang, Ze; Osterlind, Steven J.; Bergin, David A. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
Using the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study 2003 data, this study built mathematics achievement models of 8th graders in four countries: the USA, Russia, Singapore and South Africa. These 4 countries represent the full spectrum of mathematics achievement. In addition, they represent 4 continents, and they include 2 countries…

Lin, Shu-Fen; Chang, Wen-Hua; Cheng, Yeong-Jing – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2011
The processes of curricula, textbooks and student resources development have been broadly surveyed and studied while teachers' guides have received comparatively little consideration throughout recent reforms in science education. Ideal curriculum materials align instruction with the goals of reform. Well-designed teachers' guides contribute to…

Chang, Huey-Por; Chen, Chin-Chang; Guo, Gwo-Jen; Cheng, Yeong-Jin; Lin, Chen-Yung; Jen, Tsung-Hau – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2011
The objective of this study was to develop an instrument to measure school students' competence in learning science as part of a large research project in Taiwan. The instrument consisted of 29 self-report, Likert-type items divided into 2 scales: Competence in Scientific Inquiry and Competence in Communication. The Competence in Scientific…

Lee, Chun-Yi; Yuan, Yuan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
This study explored gender differences in the relationship between young people's mathematics attitudes and their perceptions toward virtual manipulatives. Seven hundred eighty junior high school adolescents who participated in the problem-solving activity using virtual manipulatives were selected for examination. The study found the male…

Gal, Hagar; Lin, Fou-Lai; Ying, Jia-Ming – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2009
This study uses classroom videotapes to examine the phenomenon of students who are left behind during whole-class teaching. Zooming in via these videos enabled us to analyze these classroom situations by means of a compact, multi-perspective set of theories--van Hiele theory, conceptualization, and visual perception. The analysis provided a…

Wu, Hsin-Kai; Hsu, Ying-Shao; Hwang, Fu-Kwun – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2008
Researchers in educational technology have searched for factors to explain teachers' acceptance and resistance to using technology for instruction. Among the many identified factors, however, organizational and school factors have not yet been explored and discussed. This study investigates the effects of school size on science and mathematics…

Hsu, Pei-Ling; Yang, Wen-Gin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2007
Systemic functional linguistics (SFL) was the foundation for this study that explored the effect of science text and image integration on grade 9 students' reading comprehension. Two texts in Chinese on the moon phase with different print and image integration were compared--a traditional textbook (TT) used in Taiwanese junior high schools and a…

Calik, Muammer – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2005
This study reports on research examining what students think about aspects of solution chemistry and seeks to establish what alternative conceptions they hold in this area. To achieve this aim the researchers developed a test comprising of open-ended questions that evaluated students understanding of solution chemistry. The test was administered…

Yen, Chiung-Fen; Yao, Tsung-Wei; Chiu, Yu-Chih – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2004
This study examined students' alternative conceptions of reptiles and amphibians and the extent to which these conceptions remain intact through the elementary (grades 4 and 6), junior, and senior high school years. We administered multiple-choice and free-response instruments to a total of 513 students and interviewed at least 20 students at each…

Lin, Fou-Lai; Yang, Kai-Lin; Chen, Chuang-Yih – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2004
Three issues about students' reasoning, proving and understanding proof in number patterns are investigated in this paper. The first is to elaborate the features of junior high students' reasoning on linear and quadratic number patterns. The second is to study the relationships between 9th graders' justification of mathematical statements about…
