Sánchez Aguilar, Mario; Castaneda, Apolo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
We report on a study focused on identifying how the notion of "the mathematician" is constructed in lower secondary Mexican mathematics textbooks. To conduct the study, we adopted a Foucauldian approach that allows us to identify the way in which the notion of the mathematician is constructed but also to delineate the possible effects…

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…

Takeuchi, Haruka; Shinno, Yusuke – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study is aimed at comparing the content in mathematics textbooks from Japan and England, focusing on symmetry and transformations at the lower secondary level. We adopted the concept of praxeology, a main construct of the Anthropological Theory of the Didactic (ATD). Using the ATD framework, our approach regarded textbooks as an empirical…

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…

Arican, Muhammet; Kuzu, Okan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study investigates preservice middle school mathematics teachers' understanding of statistics and probability and provides a cognitive diagnostic assessment of their strengths and weaknesses on these subjects. A statistical reasoning test that included 15 multiple-choice and 5 open-ended items was developed from the perspective of the…

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…

Wang, Ya-Ling; Tsai, Chin-Chung – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The purpose of the current research was to develop an instrument for high school students aiming to explore the satisfaction and frustration of their basic psychological needs of autonomy, relatedness, and competence while learning science and to investigate their relation to self-efficacy in science learning. This research involves two studies.…

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…

Zhong, Baichang; Xia, Liying – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
By providing students with a highly interactive and hands-on learning experience, robotics promises to inspire a new generation of mathematical learning. This paper aims to review the empirical evidence on the application of robotics in mathematics education and to define future research perspectives of robot-assisted mathematics education. After…

Staus, Nancy L.; Lesseig, Kristin; Lamb, Richard; Falk, John; Dierking, Lynn – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Students' declining performance in science and mathematics is an issue of great international concern. Recently, educators and researchers have begun to focus on affective factors such as interest to better understand STEM learning and persistence. Therefore, there is a need for effective measures of STEM interest that allow it to be tracked over…

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,…

Lim, Woong; Lee, Ji-Eun; Tyson, Kersti; Kim, Hee-Jeong; Kim, Jihye – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study explores the relationship between students' perceptions and teachers' discourse practices in mathematics classrooms. It reframes the sequence of Initiate-Response-Follow-up (IRF) with a renewed discourse structure that focuses on teachers' follow-up actions including listening, thoughtful questioning, and effective talk moves.…

Wilkie, Karina J. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
An important goal in school algebra is to help students notice the covariational nature of functional relationships, how the values of variables change in relation to each other. This study explored 102 Year 7 (12 to 13-year-old) students' covariational reasoning with their constructed graphs for figural growing patterns they had generalised. A…

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…
