Gasteiger, Hedwig; Brunner, Esther; Chen, Ching-Shu – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
Results of international comparison studies show substantially better mathematics performance of the investigated Asian than European students from the early years on. A Taiwanese-German Research Program (TaiGer) engages in exploring differences and similarities in the educational system, in teachers' knowledge and beliefs and in teaching or…

Enzingmüller, Carolin; Prechtl, Helmut – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
There has been a growing awareness that graphing is an essential part of the science curriculum. While much research has focused on student conceptions and abilities regarding graphical representations, only few studies have investigated what teachers think about them and how they use graphs in science class. The purpose of this study is to…

Zowada, Christian; Belova, Nadja; Eilks, Ingo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
Chemistry, with its related technical applications, is of crucial importance for creating a sustainable future. Without chemistry, current challenges will be difficult to solve. Such problems include meeting most of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) announced by the United Nations and adherence to planetary limits, for example, novel…

Safrudiannur; Rott, Benjamin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
Studies measuring teachers' beliefs quantitatively by using self-report Likert scale instruments often face methodological difficulties. Such difficulties might be due to the fact that those instruments often provide less or no contexts. Whereas, several studies have shown that contexts at school, particularly contexts related to students'…

Lu, Xiaoli; Kaiser, Gabriele; Leung, Frederick Koon Shing – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Although mentoring has been considered to be important for beginning teachers to situate themselves within the school community, only a few studies on the opportunities of mentoring and possible difficulties from the perceptions of the mentee have been carried out, especially in East Asia. In this paper, a study based on a multiple case approach…

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…

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…

Martínez-Sierra, Gustavo; García-García, Javier; Valle-Zequeida, María; Dolores-Flores, Crisólogo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This qualitative research addresses the gap of studying the relationship between beliefs about assessment in mathematics and mathematics beliefs by identifying the (espoused) beliefs about assessment and their connections with the mathematical beliefs of 18 high school Mexican out-of-field mathematics teachers (i.e. teachers without formal…

Shapira-Lishchinsky, Orly; Zavelevsky, Erez – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study aims to explore the different appearances of parental interactions based on principal, teacher, and student reports of the 8th grade Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study 2011 assessments in Israel and how the appearances of parental interactions relate to math achievements. We conducted a multilevel SEM on 147…

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…

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…

Rott, Benjamin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In this article, a theoretically derived grid is presented combining Pólya's phases of the problem-solving process with the way in which teachers emphasize their students' strategic diversity in problem solving. It is used to categorize previous results from the literature. In an empirical part, the grid is also used to describe mathematics…

Pettersen, Andreas; Braeken, Johan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The implementation of mathematical competencies in school curricula requires assessment instruments to be aligned with this new view on mathematical mastery. However, there are concerns over whether existing assessments capture the wide variety of cognitive skills and abilities that constitute mathematical competence. The current study applied an…

Lesseig, Kristin; Firestone, Jonah; Morrison, Judy; Slavit, David; Holmlund, Tamara – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Despite the increasing number of inclusive STEM schools, little is known about the cultural dimensions that influence STEM curriculum and instruction within these schools. This paper describes research conducted at three inclusive STEM schools, one each at the elementary, middle, and high school level. We explored similarities and differences in…

Yerdelen, Sündüs; Sungur, Semra – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study aimed to investigate the role of students' classroom learning environment perceptions and teacher effectiveness in 7th grade students' self-regulation in science classes. Students' self-regulation was examined in terms of self-efficacy, achievement goals, and metacognitive strategy use which constitute important components of…
