Wang, Ya-Ling; Tsai, Chin-Chung – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The purpose of the current research was to develop an instrument for high school students aiming to explore the satisfaction and frustration of their basic psychological needs of autonomy, relatedness, and competence while learning science and to investigate their relation to self-efficacy in science learning. This research involves two studies.…

Ronen, Ilana Klima – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Teacher empathy has proven to be highly relevant for the educational process and for educational outcomes, while integrating it into the teacher practicing process is challenging. This study suggests using PSTs' (pre-service students) incorrect responses as a pedagogical tool for improving empathy awareness among them so that PSTs can feel empathy…

Staus, Nancy L.; Lesseig, Kristin; Lamb, Richard; Falk, John; Dierking, Lynn – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Students' declining performance in science and mathematics is an issue of great international concern. Recently, educators and researchers have begun to focus on affective factors such as interest to better understand STEM learning and persistence. Therefore, there is a need for effective measures of STEM interest that allow it to be tracked over…

Lane, Ciara; Ní Ríordáin, Máire – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This paper describes an empirical study examining action research papers submitted by a group (n = 81) of out-of-field mathematics teachers as part of a professional development programme in Ireland. Utilising document analysis, the papers were qualitatively analysed for evidence of teachers' beliefs and practices with respect to the teaching and…

Yang, Xinyuan; Kuo, Li-Jen; Jiang, Luchen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Literacy instruction in science and math in elementary education lays a critical foundation for later content literacy development and the learning of content subjects in middle and high school. However, limited research has investigated the theoretical basis of instructional practices for science and math literacy instruction at the elementary…

Hong, Jon-Chao; Hwang, Ming-Yueh; Tsai, Chi-Ruei; Tai, Kai-Hsin; Wu, Yu-Feng – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
According to social dilemma theory, students may be characterized as being indifferent to reciprocal behavior and disengaged from interacting with the board gaming process. Given a common goal, students' prosociality can affect the collective efficacy and goal achievement motivation that reflects their flow experience in a cooperative-competitive…

Elias, Henrique Rizek; Ribeiro, Alessandro Jacques; Savioli, Angela Marta Pereira das Dores – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Our goal in this article is to organise an epistemological matrix for the concept of rational number that contemplates its different meanings. Aiming at understanding the various ways to signify the rational numbers and based on the theoretical-methodological approach of conceptual profiles, we produce and analyse data from various sources,…

Lim, Woong; Lee, Ji-Eun; Tyson, Kersti; Kim, Hee-Jeong; Kim, Jihye – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study explores the relationship between students' perceptions and teachers' discourse practices in mathematics classrooms. It reframes the sequence of Initiate-Response-Follow-up (IRF) with a renewed discourse structure that focuses on teachers' follow-up actions including listening, thoughtful questioning, and effective talk moves.…

Amador, Julie M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
There is a growing knowledge base in mathematics education highlighting the importance of teachers' cognizance about what and how they are noticing, namely considerations about their attending, interpreting, and decisions to respond on the basis of students' thinking. However, less focus has centered on those in teacher leader positions and how…

Babalola, Femi E.; Lambourne, Robert J.; Swithenby, Stephen J. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Practical work is widely seen as an important element of the science curriculum. However, there is a long-standing debate about the educational aims of practical work and about why it is important. Aims suggested include the contributions that practical work can make to understanding, to the acquisition of professional and personal skills, and to…

Redmond, Petrea; Gutke, Hannah – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
An e-mentoring program was established to support females who were studying or intending to study or work in Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths related disciplines (STEM) and were located in regional, rural or remote areas. Mentors and mentees were matched based on their shared interests, fields of study and area of employment. The…

Wilkie, Karina J. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
An important goal in school algebra is to help students notice the covariational nature of functional relationships, how the values of variables change in relation to each other. This study explored 102 Year 7 (12 to 13-year-old) students' covariational reasoning with their constructed graphs for figural growing patterns they had generalised. A…
