Banes, Leslie C.; Restani, Rachel M.; Ambrose, Rebecca C.; Martin, Heather A.; Bayley, Robert – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Many researchers have illustrated the multi-faceted nature of classroom mathematics discussions, but few have demonstrated the effect of discussion on students' assessment performance. We developed and employed a discussion observation instrument in 20 third and fourth grade classrooms in an economically disadvantaged, linguistically diverse…

Sumpter, Lovisa – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This paper investigates Swedish preschool educators' emotional directions towards mathematics. A questionnaire was answered by 157 preschool educators and their responses were analysed using both quantitative and qualitative methods. The majority of preschool educators stated that they are positive towards mathematics. Regarding the hypotheses…

Lucero, Margaret M.; Delgado, Cesar; Green, Kathryn – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The purpose of the current study was to explore and further elucidate secondary teachers' knowledge of students' conceptions (KOSC) on the topic of evolution by natural selection. Prior research has documented students' natural selection conceptions, but allowing the opportunity for teachers to describe their own students' conceptions can permit…

Biza, Irene; Hewitt, Dave; Watson, Anne; Mason, John – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In this study, we identify ways in which a sample of 18 graduates with mathematics-related first degrees found the nth term for quadratic sequences from the first values of a sequence of data, presented on a computer screen in various formats: tabular, scattered data pairs and sequential. Participants' approaches to identifying the nth term were…

Wang, Jianlan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Formal teacher preparation programs are facing the challenge of ineffective instruction of educational theories. It is partly because educational theories are taught through direct instruction, which could lead to problems such as impersonality and low motivation of pre-service teachers. In addition, it is also an unwieldy task for teacher…

Katalenic, Ana; Milin Šipuš, Željka; Cižmešija, Aleksandra – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In this paper, we will examine the mathematical knowledge that prospective mathematics teachers draw upon when graphing function graphs and curves, with a special focus on the occurrence of asymptotes. Three tasks which involved a graph of a rational and exponential function and a hyperbola as a conic section were designed and administered to…

Chen, Szu-Yu; Lin, Su-Wei – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Mathematical achievement is affected by many psychosocial variables. Motivation and problem-solving, for instance, are important correlates. Although psychosocial variables are susceptible to cultural influences, most of the prior studies are based on samples obtained from Western populations. This highlights the need for cross-cultural…

Zhu, Yan; Kaiser, Gabriele – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
As migration is an important social phenomenon, the present study analyzes the influence of migration on migrant students' performance in mathematics. In a secondary analysis of data from Program for International Student Assessment 2012 (PISA), the mathematics achievements of students from three top-performing East Asian metropolitan areas were…

Brown, Rachael Eriksen; Weiland, Travis; Orrill, Chandra Hawley – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In this qualitative study, we investigated teachers' use of proportional knowledge resources while being asked to appropriately identify if a given situation was proportional or not using clinical interview data from a large grant funded project. We found that knowledge resources related to the mathematical structure of the situation were most…

Yu, Kuang-Chao; Wu, Pai-Hsing; Fan, Szu-Chun – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
With an increased emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, educators have often adopted engineering projects for integrating interdisciplinary knowledge through engineering design process. However, there is scant research that has empirically documented the relationships among students' understanding of the…

Choi, Aeran; Hand, Brian – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study examines how grade 5 students engage with the aspects (construct and critique) of argument in an online asynchronous discussion combined with in-class wrap-up discussion. Grade 5 students in a rural public school engaged in a "human health investigation" unit using an argument-based inquiry approach followed by online…

Lee, Ji-Eun; Lee, Mi Yeon – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study is an investigation of elementary preservice teachers' (PSTs') exploration of model breaking points in fractions. Eighty-three PSTs at two universities in the Midwestern and Southwestern regions of the USA were asked to explore the area model of fraction addition through a series of tasks and explain their reasoning in determining its…

Delgado-Rebolledo, Rosa; Zakaryan, Diana – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Currently, studies focusing on mathematics education pay more attention to the study of the lecturer's knowledge, aiming to understand this knowledge, its development, and how it is reflected in the practice of teaching. Following this line of research, the present study is based in the "Mathematics Teacher's Specialized Knowledge…

Vallera, Farah L.; Bodzin, Alec M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Agriculture can serve as a unifying and contextualizing topic that connects science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) subjects through similar knowledge, skills, and attitudes/beliefs (KSABs) exhibited in each. Agriculture can be an integral part of students' primary-level curriculum, providing authentic and relevant material for…

Vale, Colleen; Campbell, Coral; Speldewinde, Christopher; White, Pennie – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study explored the teaching and learning beliefs of qualified (in-field) secondary science teachers who were teaching mathematics out-of-field that is, without qualification. The relationship between secondary teachers' beliefs about their in-field subject--science and their out-of-field subject--mathematics was examined. The theory of…
