Yang, Der-Ching; Sianturi, Iwan Andi J. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Judging the reasonableness of computational results is pivotal for students to understand mathematical concepts. This domain is the most sensitive to the presence of misconceptions in mathematics. Confidence ratings can serve as a measure of the strength of students' conceptual understanding. This study investigated the performance,…

Wei, Bing; Ou, Yitong – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao, in the Greater China Region, have similar yet different educational systems and curriculum standards, and each has performed well in international tests for science achievement. Using revised Bloom's taxonomy, this study analyzed and explored the similarities and differences among these four Chinese…

Ng, Chi-hung Clarence – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Using a sample of 310 Year 10 Chinese students from Hong Kong, this survey study examined the effects of multiple goals in learning mathematics. Independent variables were mastery, performance-approach, performance-avoidance, and pro-social goals. Dependent variables included perceived classroom goal structures, teacher's support, learning motives…

Fung, Dennis; Hung, Venus; Lui, Wai-mei – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study compares the learning results of three groups of secondary two (grade eight) students of a similar academic standard who participated in a teaching intervention involving different pedagogies. One hundred and forty-nine Hong Kong secondary students were chosen and divided into three groups, "whole-class teaching approach",…

So, Winnie Wing Mui; Zhan, Ying; Chow, Stephen Cheuk Fai; Leung, Chi Fai – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study adopted a researcher-generated framework to analyze STEM activities demonstrated in primary students' science projects in an annual extracurricular event held in Hong Kong. Ten students' project reports were randomly selected from each of the three groups of 24 outstanding, 45 merit, and 68 consolation awarded projects. Content analysis…

Kutnick, Peter; Fung, Dennis C. L.; Mok, Ida. A. C.; Leung, Frederick K. S.; Li, Johnson C. H.; Lee, Betty P.-Y.; Lai, Veronica K. W. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The Hong Kong Education Bureau recommends that primary school pupils' mathematical achievement be enhanced via collaborative discussions engendered by group work. This pedagogic change may be hindered by Confucian heritage classroom practices and Western-dominated group work approaches that predominate in Hong Kong. To overcome these obstacles, we…

So, Winnie W. M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Data collection, organization, and analysis are indispensable means of seeking solutions during the process of inquiry. Representations (called inscriptions by some educators) including graphs, tables, photographs, and equations are powerful ways of arranging and displaying data in visual form. This study aims to analyze quantitatively the use of…

Zhang, Qiaoping; Barkatsas, Tasos; Law, Huk-Yuen; Leu, Yuh-Chyn; Seah, Wee Tiong; Wong, Ngai-Ying – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
It has become increasingly recognized that what teachers and students value affect teaching and learning in general and in the area of mathematics in particular. Yet, the extent to which this is so varies across cultural regions. In recent years, how the ethnic Chinese teach and learn mathematics has attracted much attention worldwide. It is…

Lai, Mun Yee; Murray, Sara – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
Most studies of students' understanding of decimals have been conducted within Western cultural settings. The broad aim of the present research was to gain insight into Chinese Hong Kong grade 6 students' general performance on a variety of decimals tasks. More specifically, the study aimed to explore students' mathematical reasoning for their use…

Chen, Qian – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
In this study, the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study 2007 data were used to build mathematics achievement models of fourth graders in two East Asian school systems: Hong Kong and Singapore. In each school system, eight variables at student level and nine variables at school/class level were incorporated to build an achievement…

Zhu, Yan; Leung, Frederick Koon Shing – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
Though it is generally believed that doing homework promotes better learning, no consensus has been achieved concerning its importance and relevance to students' achievement. The historical up-and-down status of public attitudes toward homework indicates that understanding about the role of homework in students' learning is far from comprehensive…

Cheng, May May Hung – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2011
The written representation in Chinese can be considered as a pictorial or a symbolic representation which is very different from English where the pronunciation is related to how the word is spelt. Students face challenges of a very different nature when science is learnt in Chinese compared with English. In Hong Kong, students are making…
