Ju, Mi-Kyung; Moon, Jong-Eun; Song, Ryoon-Jin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
From a multicultural perspective, this research investigated to what extent Korean mathematics textbooks use history of mathematics. The results show even though educational use of history presented in Korean mathematics textbooks may provide a rich outlook, it does not encourage a fundamental change in the educational practice of school…

Sumpter, Lovisa – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Previous results show that Swedish upper secondary school teachers attribute gender to cases describing different types of mathematical reasoning. The purpose of this study was to investigate how these teachers gender stereotype aspects of students' mathematical reasoning by studying the symbols that were attributed to boys and girls,…

Mikk, Jaan; Krips, Heiki; Säälik, Ülle; Kalk, Karmen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Teacher-student relations have a significant correlation with student motivation, academic performance and discipline. For example, the meta-analysis by Hattie (2009) revealed an effect size of d = 0.72 for the effect of relations on achievement, and the meta-analysis by Finn, Schrodt, Witt, Elledge, Jernberg & Larson ("Communication…

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…

Ayar, Mehmet C.; Aydeniz, Mehmet; Yalvac, Bugrahan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
In this paper, we analyze the science activities offered at 7th grade in the Turkish science and technology curriculum along with addressing the curriculum's original intent. We refer to several science education researchers' ideas, including Chinn & Malhotra's (Science Education, 86:175--218, 2002) theoretical framework and Edelson's (1998)…

Dede, Yüksel – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
This study presents a small part of a larger study investigating Turkish and German mathematics teachers' and their students' values (Values in Mathematics Teaching in Turkey and Germany). The main focus of the study was school levels of the teachers working at primary and secondary schools. The interactions related to nationality were also of…

Arici, Sevil; Aslan-Tutak, Fatma – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
This research study examined the effect of origami-based geometry instruction on spatial visualization, geometry achievement, and geometric reasoning of tenth-grade students in Turkey. The sample ("n" = 184) was chosen from a tenth-grade population of a public high school in Turkey. It was a quasi-experimental pretest/posttest design. A…

Pedersen, Ida Friestad – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
Algebra is the fundamental language of mathematics, and a profound understanding of school algebra is an important prerequisite for further studies in mathematical sciences. The aim of this study is to characterize the algebraic competence of the Norwegian upper secondary school students participating in Trends in International Mathematics and…

Morentin, Maite; Guisasola, Jenaro – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
In recent decades, research has shown the challenge posed to teachers by science education in informal contexts such as science museums or centres. In addition, there is consensus that in the case of pupils visiting a science centre, learning improves when the visit is connected to the classroom curriculum, so the teachers' involvement in…

Ekawati, Rooselyna; Lin, Fou-Lai; Yang, Kai-Lin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
In this study, we developed an instrument for assessing teachers' mathematics content knowledge (MCK) on ratio and proportion and examined the profile of Indonesian primary teacher's MCK on this topic. The MCK items were administered to 271 Indonesian in-service primary teachers with a variety of educational backgrounds and teaching experiences.…

Cheng, Ming-Chang; Chou, Pei-I; Wang, Ya-Ting; Lin, Chih-Ho – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
This study investigates how the illustrations in a science textbook, with their design modified according to cognitive process principles, affected students' learning performance. The quasi-experimental design recruited two Grade 5 groups (N?=?58) as the research participants. The treatment group (n?=?30) used the modified version of the textbook,…

O'Keeffe, Lisa; O'Donoghue, John – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
In current textbook analysis research, there is a strong focus on the content, structure and expectation presented by the textbook as elements for analysis. This research moves beyond such foci and proposes a framework for textbook language analysis which is intended to be integrated into an overall framework for mathematics textbook analysis. The…
