Gasteiger, Hedwig; Brunner, Esther; Chen, Ching-Shu – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
Results of international comparison studies show substantially better mathematics performance of the investigated Asian than European students from the early years on. A Taiwanese-German Research Program (TaiGer) engages in exploring differences and similarities in the educational system, in teachers' knowledge and beliefs and in teaching or…

Son, Ji-Won; Lee, Mi Yeon – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
Despite the importance of teachers' conceptions of and competency in problem solving, limited attention is given to this area in the current literature. We examined 96 preservice elementary teachers' problem-solving conceptions and performances by having them define and create metaphors for problem solving and then investigated the relationships…

Özgeldi, Meriç; Aydin, Utkun – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
This study investigates how three widely used calculus textbooks realise integrals as a potential to prompt mathematical competencies, adapting the rating scheme used in Boesen et al. ("The Journal of Mathematical Behavior," 33:72-87, 2014), Pettersen and Braeken ("International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education,"…

Yeo, Jennifer; Lim, Eugene; Tan, Kim Chwee Daniel; Ong, Yann Shiou – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
Temperature and heat are difficult concepts for children to grasp due to their abstractness. An image-to-writing approach, guided by the visualisation practices of scientists, was designed to engage elementary students with constructing images to represent their ideas about phenomena and translating these images into text using scientific…

Maiorca, Cathrine; Roberts, Thomas; Jackson, Christa; Bush, Sarah; Delaney, Ashley; Mohr-Schroeder, Margaret J.; Soledad, Soledad Yao – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
Little research has been done to examine the impact of informal science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning on middle school students' career aspirations. Participants included 507 incoming fifth through eighth graders from underrepresented populations in STEM fields, which were recruited at three sites. Data collected…

Kier, Meredith W.; Blanchard, Margaret R. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
This multiple case study elicited the voices of four 8th grade students, from a rural, low-income school district, who participated in STEM career explorations during their science class. Based on students' written reflections during career explorations, interviews, and from field notes, we analyzed the ways students talked about their lives and…

Enzingmüller, Carolin; Prechtl, Helmut – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
There has been a growing awareness that graphing is an essential part of the science curriculum. While much research has focused on student conceptions and abilities regarding graphical representations, only few studies have investigated what teachers think about them and how they use graphs in science class. The purpose of this study is to…

Coskun, Sumeyra Dogan; Bostan, Mine Isiksal; Rowland, Tim – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
The purpose of this case study is to investigate the triggers of unexpected (contingent) moments during one in-service primary teacher's teaching of the measurement of length and perimeter, to identify this teacher's responses to these moments, and to examine how these responses change the flow of the measurement of length and perimeter…

Zowada, Christian; Belova, Nadja; Eilks, Ingo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
Chemistry, with its related technical applications, is of crucial importance for creating a sustainable future. Without chemistry, current challenges will be difficult to solve. Such problems include meeting most of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) announced by the United Nations and adherence to planetary limits, for example, novel…

Habiddin, Habiddin; Page, Elizabeth Mary – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
The published study of Nurrenbern and Pickering in 1987 raises awareness among chemistry educators that students' success in answering numerical questions does not necessarily reflect their degree of understanding of the related chemical concepts. Efforts have been made to provide more opportunities for students to improve their ability in…

Chan, Kennedy Kam Ho; Yau, King Woon – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
This study investigated the nature of pre-service science teachers' (PSTs') situation-specific skills for informal formative assessment (FA) and their awareness of activating these skills in classroom-like situations. Video-based interviews were conducted to collect data from fifteen PSTs before they participated in a teacher education program.…

Guzey, S. Selcen; Jung, Ji Yoon – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
Recent reforms in science education have supported the inclusion of engineering in K-12 curricula. To this end, many science classrooms have incorporated engineering units that include design tasks. Design is an integral part of engineering and helps students think in creative and interdisciplinary ways. In this study, we examined middle-school…

Oliver, Kevin M.; Houchins, Jennifer K.; Moore, Robert L.; Wang, Chuang – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
A growing body of research focuses on what outcomes to assess in makerspaces, and appropriate formats for capturing those outcomes (e.g. reflections, surveys, and portfolios). Linguistic analysis as a data mining technique holds promise for revealing different dimensions of learning exhibited by students in makerspaces. In this study, student…

Safrudiannur; Rott, Benjamin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
Studies measuring teachers' beliefs quantitatively by using self-report Likert scale instruments often face methodological difficulties. Such difficulties might be due to the fact that those instruments often provide less or no contexts. Whereas, several studies have shown that contexts at school, particularly contexts related to students'…

Caymaz, Belkiz; Aydin, Abdullah – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
The aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of the common knowledge construction model (CKCM)-based instruction on academic achievement and 7th grade students' views about the nature of science (NOS) presented in electrical energy unit at schools of different socio-economic levels. In accordance with this purpose, three secondary…
