Sormunen, Kati; Juuti, Kalle; Lavonen, Jari – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Supporting students' active participation in maker-centered project-based learning (PBL) can be challenging in inclusive classes. The aim of this study was to support students' active participation in cooperative team via teacher-directed reflective discussions during an inclusive, maker-centered PBL unit. The study was conducted during the…

Laine, Anu; Ahtee, Maija; Näveri, Liisa – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The aim of this article was to determine the factors in teachers' actions that could explain differences in the emotional atmosphere of primary school classrooms. Based on pupils' drawings about their mathematics lessons, we analyzed both the pupils' and their teachers' actions, including pupils requesting help, sitting alone, and talking about…

Vallera, Farah L.; Bodzin, Alec M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Agriculture can serve as a unifying and contextualizing topic that connects science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) subjects through similar knowledge, skills, and attitudes/beliefs (KSABs) exhibited in each. Agriculture can be an integral part of students' primary-level curriculum, providing authentic and relevant material for…

Perry, Lindsey – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Numeric relational reasoning is a foundational mathematical idea for young children and is predictive of future success in mathematics. However, no readily available assessments exist that fully assess relational reasoning in young children. RTI International developed a Relational Reasoning subtask for potential inclusion on the Early Grade…

Can, Derya; Yetkin Özdemir, I. Elif – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Research on number sense presents contradictory arguments and results regarding the effects of context-based tasks and activities on students' number sense. The aim of this study was to examine fourth-grade elementary school students' number sense as they solve context-based (CB) and non-context-based (NCB) items. A survey design was employed and…

Ayala-Altamirano, Cristina; Molina, Marta – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This article describes part of the findings of a teaching experiment whose objective is to investigate the algebraic abilities of elementary students when they solve situations that involve a functional relationship. In particular, we focus on describing the use and meanings attributed to letters by third-year primary school students when faced…

Banes, Leslie C.; Restani, Rachel M.; Ambrose, Rebecca C.; Martin, Heather A.; Bayley, Robert – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Many researchers have illustrated the multi-faceted nature of classroom mathematics discussions, but few have demonstrated the effect of discussion on students' assessment performance. We developed and employed a discussion observation instrument in 20 third and fourth grade classrooms in an economically disadvantaged, linguistically diverse…

Choi, Aeran; Hand, Brian – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study examines how grade 5 students engage with the aspects (construct and critique) of argument in an online asynchronous discussion combined with in-class wrap-up discussion. Grade 5 students in a rural public school engaged in a "human health investigation" unit using an argument-based inquiry approach followed by online…

Ng, Oi-Lam; Ferrara, Francesca – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In this paper, we build on a previously developed notion of 'learning as Making' to examine mathematics thinking and learning in a highly transformative and technological Making environment: one that involves a handheld 3D printing technology which enables 3D models to be created instantly via one's moving hand. In particular, we present two…

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…

Mason, Lucia; Zaccoletti, Sonia; Carretti, Barbara; Scrimin, Sara; Diakidoy, Irene-Anna N. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Text is the primary tool to learn disciplinary knowledge in school. Text-based learning is shaped by a complex interplay between the text and reader characteristics. This study examined the role of text structure and inhibition in conceptual learning about energy. Inhibition implies the ability to block dominant but inappropriate responses…

Bofferding, Laura; Farmer, Sherri – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The language involved in de-contextualized integer comparisons poses challenges, as students may interpret "most" based on absolute values rather than on order. Using the context of temperature, we explored how students' integer value comparisons differed based on question phrasing (which temperature is hottest, most hot, least hot,…

Sia, Carolyn Jia Ling; Lim, Chap Sam; Chew, Cheng Meng; Kor, Liew Kee – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Cognitive model [CM] is the description of individual's problem-solving method on selected tasks at a precise level to make meaningful inference on his/her strengths and weaknesses. CM serves as a foundation in developing a cognitive diagnostic assessment [CDA] that links the interpretation of test score to the attributes. This study employed the…
