Smith, Thomas J.; Walker, David A.; Chen, Hsiang-Ting; Hong, Zuway-R. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The present study examined data from the 2015 Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study to address cross-cultural differences in 4th grade students' attitudes towards science and how students' sense of school belonging (SSSB) scores were related to attitude towards science. Regression results indicated that SSSB emerged as a…

Fazio, Xavier; Gallagher, Tiffany L. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
The science vocabulary from a science curriculum standards document (Ministry of Education Ontario, 2007) was classified by morphological developmental level and compared to the grade level topics of the curriculum (grades 1 to 8). Descriptive statistical analyses highlight the complex nature of science vocabulary and the incompatibilities between…
