Yeo, Lian-Ming; Tzeng, Yuh-Tsuen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The present study attempted to replicate the previous results of Hu et al. (Learning and Instruction 35:85-93 2015) and further examined the boundary condition of tracing gesture whether its cognitive effect is merely comparable with other attention-guiding means, i.e., textual attention cueing, in two different learning tasks in nature. In two…

Gao, Jie – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Understanding the development of mathematics self-efficacy has important implications. Based on Bandura's four sources of self-efficacy, most previous studies mainly examined whether the sources predicted or correlated with mathematics self-efficacy, which might have oversimplified the underlying mechanism of self-efficacy development. This study…

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…

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…

Turan, Gurbet Yeliz; Köklükaya, Ayse Nesibe; Yildirim, Ezgi Güven – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study aims to investigate the effects of educational games, while teaching the unit of matter and heat, utilized on students and the remarks of the students on the process. The research model called mixed method, in which both quantitative and qualitative research methods are used together, had been applied. The research group consisted of…

Ke, Fengfeng; M. Clark, Kathleen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This mixed-method study aims to explore the feasibility of using the game-based, multimodal representation of mathematical problems to support middle school students' practice and performance of math problem representation and solving. A three-dimensional architectural simulation game, called E-Rebuild, was developed to engage students in…

Elias, Henrique Rizek; Ribeiro, Alessandro Jacques; Savioli, Angela Marta Pereira das Dores – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Our goal in this article is to organise an epistemological matrix for the concept of rational number that contemplates its different meanings. Aiming at understanding the various ways to signify the rational numbers and based on the theoretical-methodological approach of conceptual profiles, we produce and analyse data from various sources,…

Kim, Gahyoung; Ko, Yeonjoo; Lee, Hyunju – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study aimed to investigate how the community-based socioscientific issues program (SSI-COMM) affected middle school students' sense of place (SOP) and character development as citizens. We designed and implemented SSI-COMM on fine dust, abandoned pets, and recycling issues that were closely related to the students' local communities. SSI-COMM…

Tabach, Michal; Hershkowitz, Rina; Azmon, Shirly; Dreyfus, Tommy – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
We focus on teachers' ways of leading whole class discussions (WCDs) in mathematics, with the goal of uncovering their traces (if any) in their students' responses (a) while participating in the WCDs and (b) in the written responses in a final test. For this purpose, two 8th-grade probability classes learning a 10-lesson unit with different…

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…

Pitta-Pantazi, Demetra; Chimoni, Maria; Christou, Constantinos – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Central in the frameworks that describe algebra from K-12 is the idea that algebraic thinking is not a single construct, but consists of several algebraic thinking strands. Validation studies exploring this idea are relatively scarce. This study used structural equation modeling techniques to analyze data of middle school students' performance on…

Shin, Namsoo; Choi, Sung-Youn; Stevens, Shawn Y.; Krajcik, Joseph S. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
A coherent curriculum that clearly defines sets of ideas that build upon one another to meet desired learning goals can successfully support the development of meaningful understanding across time. This study explores the influence of a coherent curriculum as a systematic approach to aligning and sequencing specific ideas to support students in…

Schüler-Meyer, Alexander; Prediger, Susanne; Kuzu, Taha; Wessel, Lena; Redder, Angelika – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
To what degree can multilingual students profit from bilingual teaching approaches, even when they lack experience in the academic or technical register in their home languages? This study explores this research question in a mixed methods design for a German/Turkish bilingual intervention aimed at fostering conceptual understanding of fractions…
