Yang, Xinyuan; Kuo, Li-Jen; Jiang, Luchen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Literacy instruction in science and math in elementary education lays a critical foundation for later content literacy development and the learning of content subjects in middle and high school. However, limited research has investigated the theoretical basis of instructional practices for science and math literacy instruction at the elementary…

Cai, Jinfa; Hwang, Stephen; Hiebert, James; Hohensee, Charles; Morris, Anne; Robison, Victoria – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Significant research in science and mathematics education should advance the field's knowledge and understanding of the teaching and learning of science and mathematics. How, then, should the significance of a research question in science and mathematics education be assessed? And, when disseminating the findings of research, how should the…

Fang, Su-Chi; Hsu, Ying-Shao; Lin, Shu-Sheng – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This article proposes a theoretical framework for conceptualizing socioscientific decision making, reviews current research in this area, and intends to shed some light on the instructional design for the classroom implementation of socioscientific decision making. The framework involves 3 phases: formulate the decision-making space, posit a…

Tho, Siew Wei; Yeung, Yau Yuen; Wei, Rui; Chan, Ka Wing; So, Winnie Wing-mui – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Laboratory work, particularly the latest remote laboratories (RLs), has been assumed to have a general positive effect on science education because practical work can provide diverse learning experiences and enhance thinking skills suitable for the 21st century. However, there has not been a synthesis of the science education research to support…

Hsu, Ying-Shao; Yen, Miao-Hsuan; Chang, Wen-Hua; Wang, Chia-Yu; Chen, Sufen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
There is an increasing interest in conducting reading-related studies in science education using a self-regulated learning (SRL) lens. This exploration involved a content analysis of 34 articles (38 studies in total) in highly regarded journals from 1998 to 2012 using an SRL interpretative framework to reveal critical features and relationships in…

Wong, Chee Leong; Chu, Hye-Eun; Yap, Kueh Chin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Currently, there is no agreement among scientists and science educators on whether heat should be defined as a "process of energy transfer" or "form of energy." For example, students may conceive of heat as "molecular kinetic energy," but the interpretation of this alternative conception is dependent on educational…

Tang, Kai-Yu; Wang, Chia-Yu; Chang, Hsin-Yi; Chen, Sufen; Lo, Hao-Chang; Tsai, Chin-Chung – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The issues of metacognitive scaffolding in science education (MSiSE) have become increasingly popular and important. Differing from previous content reviews, this study proposes a series of quantitative computer-based analyses by integrating document co-citation analysis, social network analysis, and exploratory factor analysis to explore the…

Liu, Chia-Ju; Chiang, Wen-Wei – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
This report provides an overview of neuroscience research that is applicable for science educators. It first offers a brief analysis of empirical studies in educational neuroscience literature, followed by six science concept learning constructs based on the whole brain theory: gaining an understanding of brain function; pattern recognition and…

Jen, Tsung-Hau; Lee, Che-Di; Chien, Chin-Lung; Hsu, Ying-Shao; Chen, Kuan-Ming – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2013
Based on the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study 2007 study and a follow-up national survey, data for 3,901 Taiwanese grade 8 students were analyzed using structural equation modeling to confirm a social-relation-based affection-driven model (SRAM). SRAM hypothesized relationships among students' perceived social relationships in…

Halai, Nelofer – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
This study is a meta-synthesis of 20 action research studies undertaken in the classroom by teachers to develop their understanding of an innovative strategy for teaching science. The studies were undertaken as part of the requirements for their 2-year M.Ed. program from the Aga Khan University, Institute for Educational Development (AKU-IED),…

Lin, Tzu-Chiang; Hsu, Ying-Shao; Lin, Shu-Sheng; Changlai, Maio-Li; Yang, Kun-Yuan; Lai, Ting-Ling – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
This content analysis of articles in the Social Science Citation Index journals from 1995 to 2009 was conducted to provide science educators with empirical evidence regarding the effects of scaffolding on science learning. It clarifies the definition, design, and implementation of scaffolding in science classrooms and research studies. The results…

Ko, Yi-Yin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
Current mathematics education reforms devoted to reasoning and proof highlight its importance in pre-kindergarten through grade 12. In order to provide students with opportunities to experience and understand proof, mathematics teachers must have a solid understanding of proofs themselves. In light of this challenge, a growing number of…

Tippett, Christine D. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
As people attempt to make sense of the world, they develop personal knowledge structures. These structures often contain misconceptions--inaccurate or incomplete information--that are highly resistant to change because existing knowledge networks must be restructured to accommodate counterintuitive information in a process known as conceptual…

Watson, Jane M.; Kelly, Ben A. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2009
Data from 154 interviews with students in grades 3 to 13 were analyzed to suggest a developmental progression of conceptual understanding associated with the sample space for two ordinary six-sided dice tossed simultaneously. The model was then considered in the light of responses to an extension task involving three six-sided dice with four sides…
