Hamdan Alghamdi, Amani K. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study aimed to reveal the extent to which citizenship values are included in Saudi Arabian elementary science textbooks, which teachers have to use. The content of six grades 4 to 6 textbooks used in the first and second semesters was analyzed with a focus on three themes related to citizenship values: cultural, social, and political…

Laine, Anu; Ahtee, Maija; Näveri, Liisa – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The aim of this article was to determine the factors in teachers' actions that could explain differences in the emotional atmosphere of primary school classrooms. Based on pupils' drawings about their mathematics lessons, we analyzed both the pupils' and their teachers' actions, including pupils requesting help, sitting alone, and talking about…

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…

Pearce, Erin; Stewart, Morgan; Malkoc, Ummuhan; Ivy, Ronald; Weinburgh, Molly – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
A learning format gaining attention that encourages language acquisition in science is the use of dynamic models as instructional tools. This grounded theory investigates the impact of the dynamic food chain model as an alternative lesson for teaching food chains. The researchers examined the impact of a paper-based activity and a dynamic model…

Mason, Lucia; Zaccoletti, Sonia; Carretti, Barbara; Scrimin, Sara; Diakidoy, Irene-Anna N. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Text is the primary tool to learn disciplinary knowledge in school. Text-based learning is shaped by a complex interplay between the text and reader characteristics. This study examined the role of text structure and inhibition in conceptual learning about energy. Inhibition implies the ability to block dominant but inappropriate responses…

Summers, Ryan; Wang, Shuai; Abd-El-Khalick, Fouad; Said, Ziad – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Surveying is a common methodology in science education research, including cross-national and cross-cultural comparisons. The literature surrounding students' attitudes toward science, in particular, illustrates the prevalence of efforts to translate instruments with the eventual goal of comparing groups. This paper utilizes survey data from a…

Han, Moonhyun; Kim, Heui-baik – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study investigates how elementary students were able to construct a human respiratory system model and, in particular, how the process of reasoning contributed to their model through the use of analogy model activities. For this study, modeling activities that included the use of analogy models were designed and implemented. Over 4 class…

Daher, Wajeeh; Saifi, Abdel-Gani – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The constructivist learning approach is suggested as a means for facilitating students' learning of science and increasing their participation in this learning. Several studies have shown the contribution of this approach to the different aspects of students' learning of science, though little research has examined the contribution of this…

Safadi, Rafi' – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
I examined how well a self-diagnosis activity engages students in knowledge-integration processes, and its impact on students' mathematical achievements. The self-diagnosis activity requires students to self-diagnose their solutions to problems that they have solved on their own--namely, to identify where they went wrong and to explain the nature…

Garza, Tiberio; Huerta, Margarita; Spies, Tracy G.; Lara-Alecio, Rafael; Irby, Beverly J.; Tong, Fuhui – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Academic language is critical for English learners (ELs) to succeed in the science classroom. This study analyzed the instructional practices centered around academic language taking place in eight, fifth-grade classrooms during a grant-funded project. Observational data collected through a classroom observation instrument were analyzed to…

Ronen, Ilana – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study begins the task of mapping out two approaches that may be helpful in overcoming incorrect responses to conservation tasks, focusing on the non-conserved quantity. The incorrect responses, which were the result of over-generalizations of conservation, and gradually increased with age despite formal knowledge and minor perceptual input,…

Heshmati, Saeideh; Kersting, Nicole; Sutton, Taliesin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study explored the design and implementation of the Cover-up and Un-cover games, two manipulative-based fraction games, in 14 fifth-grade classrooms. We examined how the fraction concepts were integrated into the game design and explored the nature of teacher-student interactions during games using lesson videos. Our examination showed that…

Romance, Nancy; Vitale, Michael – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Reported are the results of a multiyear study in which reading comprehension and writing were integrated within an in-depth science instructional model (Science IDEAS) in daily 1.5 to 2 h daily lessons on a schoolwide basis in grades 3-4-5. Multilevel (HLM7) achievement findings showed the experimental intervention resulted in significant and…

Erdem, Emrullah – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The current study examines the mental computation performance owned by students at fifth grade. This study was carried out with 118 fifth graders (11-12-year-olds) studying at 3 randomly selected primary schools that served low and middle socio-economic areas in a city of Turkey. "Mental Computation Test (MCT)" has been used to reach how…
