Kenney, Rachael; An, Tuyin; Kim, Sung-Hee; Uhan, Nelson A.; Yi, Ji Soo; Shamsul, Aiman – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In linear programming, many students find it difficult to translate a verbal description of a problem into a valid mathematical model. To better understand this, we examine the existing characteristics of college engineering students' errors across linear programming (LP) problems. We examined textbooks to identify the types of problems typically…

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…

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…

Johnson, Patrick; Shúilleabháin, Aoibhinn Ní; Ríordáin, Máire Ní; Prendergast, Mark – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In this research, we investigate the concerns regarding a national mathematics curricular reform of a cohort of student teachers over the course of their 2-year postgraduate initial teacher education (ITE) programme. The concerns of 41 student teachers from four third-level institutions in Ireland were initially recorded at the commencement of…

Sahin, Alpaslan; Waxman, Hersh C.; Demirci, Edward; Rangel, Virginia Snodgrass – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The purpose of this study is to compare the college enrollment and STEM college major choice rates of graduates of a STEM-focused charter school system to those of students who graduated from traditional public schools in the state of Texas and the USA for low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented groups. In addition, the factors students…

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…

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…
