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…

Johnson, Patrick; Shúilleabháin, Aoibhinn Ní; Ríordáin, Máire Ní; Prendergast, Mark – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In this research, we investigate the concerns regarding a national mathematics curricular reform of a cohort of student teachers over the course of their 2-year postgraduate initial teacher education (ITE) programme. The concerns of 41 student teachers from four third-level institutions in Ireland were initially recorded at the commencement of…

Lu, Xiaoli; Kaiser, Gabriele; Leung, Frederick Koon Shing – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Although mentoring has been considered to be important for beginning teachers to situate themselves within the school community, only a few studies on the opportunities of mentoring and possible difficulties from the perceptions of the mentee have been carried out, especially in East Asia. In this paper, a study based on a multiple case approach…

Heyd-Metzuyanim, Einat; Hess-Green, Rachel – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study follows a mathematical camp for high-school students identified as gifted, and examines it with a socio-cultural lens. Our goal is to examine the identities of students in the camp and the valued actions according to which these identities were authored, both by the students and by their instructors. Data was collected from three rounds…

Sahin, Alpaslan; Waxman, Hersh C.; Demirci, Edward; Rangel, Virginia Snodgrass – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The purpose of this study is to compare the college enrollment and STEM college major choice rates of graduates of a STEM-focused charter school system to those of students who graduated from traditional public schools in the state of Texas and the USA for low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented groups. In addition, the factors students…

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…

Sumpter, Lovisa – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This paper investigates Swedish preschool educators' emotional directions towards mathematics. A questionnaire was answered by 157 preschool educators and their responses were analysed using both quantitative and qualitative methods. The majority of preschool educators stated that they are positive towards mathematics. Regarding the hypotheses…

Lucero, Margaret M.; Delgado, Cesar; Green, Kathryn – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The purpose of the current study was to explore and further elucidate secondary teachers' knowledge of students' conceptions (KOSC) on the topic of evolution by natural selection. Prior research has documented students' natural selection conceptions, but allowing the opportunity for teachers to describe their own students' conceptions can permit…

Biza, Irene; Hewitt, Dave; Watson, Anne; Mason, John – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In this study, we identify ways in which a sample of 18 graduates with mathematics-related first degrees found the nth term for quadratic sequences from the first values of a sequence of data, presented on a computer screen in various formats: tabular, scattered data pairs and sequential. Participants' approaches to identifying the nth term were…

Wang, Jianlan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Formal teacher preparation programs are facing the challenge of ineffective instruction of educational theories. It is partly because educational theories are taught through direct instruction, which could lead to problems such as impersonality and low motivation of pre-service teachers. In addition, it is also an unwieldy task for teacher…

Katalenic, Ana; Milin Šipuš, Željka; Cižmešija, Aleksandra – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In this paper, we will examine the mathematical knowledge that prospective mathematics teachers draw upon when graphing function graphs and curves, with a special focus on the occurrence of asymptotes. Three tasks which involved a graph of a rational and exponential function and a hyperbola as a conic section were designed and administered to…

Chen, Szu-Yu; Lin, Su-Wei – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Mathematical achievement is affected by many psychosocial variables. Motivation and problem-solving, for instance, are important correlates. Although psychosocial variables are susceptible to cultural influences, most of the prior studies are based on samples obtained from Western populations. This highlights the need for cross-cultural…

Zhu, Yan; Kaiser, Gabriele – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
As migration is an important social phenomenon, the present study analyzes the influence of migration on migrant students' performance in mathematics. In a secondary analysis of data from Program for International Student Assessment 2012 (PISA), the mathematics achievements of students from three top-performing East Asian metropolitan areas were…

Brown, Rachael Eriksen; Weiland, Travis; Orrill, Chandra Hawley – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In this qualitative study, we investigated teachers' use of proportional knowledge resources while being asked to appropriately identify if a given situation was proportional or not using clinical interview data from a large grant funded project. We found that knowledge resources related to the mathematical structure of the situation were most…

Yu, Kuang-Chao; Wu, Pai-Hsing; Fan, Szu-Chun – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
With an increased emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, educators have often adopted engineering projects for integrating interdisciplinary knowledge through engineering design process. However, there is scant research that has empirically documented the relationships among students' understanding of the…
