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…

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…

Ivars, Pedro; Fernández, Ceneida; Llinares, Salvador – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The objective of this research is to understand how a learning trajectory supports pre-service primary teachers in their noticing of students' mathematical understanding. A total of 95 pre-service primary school teachers used a learning trajectory related to the part-whole meaning of the fraction concept to interpret students' understanding and…

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…

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…

Rollinde, E. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The Human Orrery is a representation of the Solar System at a human scale, on which positions of planets over time are symbolized by different discs. Learners can then walk along the orbits of the planets with the right pace. This pedagogical tool uses the principles of enacted cognition to promote a better understanding of the scientific laws of…

García-Carmona, Antonio – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This article presents a qualitative descriptive-interpretive study about the abilities of pre-service primary science teachers (PPTs) to solve a measurement problem put to them as an activity of scientific inquiry. The participants in the study were 23 PPTs receiving training in science teaching, organized into small groups to solve the proposed…

Patkin, Dorit; Shriki, Atara; Barkai, Ruthi – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Despite the plethora of research in the field of mental rotation, researchers are still divided over a range of related issues, particularly the processes involved in coping with mental rotation tasks. This field of research, for the most part, is descriptive rather than interpretative, leading to the absence of a theoretical framework to enable…

Park, Mimi; Lee, Eun-Jung – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Equiprobability bias (EB) is one of the frequently observed misconceptions in probability education in K-12 and can be affected by a problem context. As future teachers, preservice teachers need to have a stable understanding of probability and to have the knowledge to identify EB in their students regardless of the problem context. However, there…
