Kenney, Rachael; An, Tuyin; Kim, Sung-Hee; Uhan, Nelson A.; Yi, Ji Soo; Shamsul, Aiman – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In linear programming, many students find it difficult to translate a verbal description of a problem into a valid mathematical model. To better understand this, we examine the existing characteristics of college engineering students' errors across linear programming (LP) problems. We examined textbooks to identify the types of problems typically…

Yeo, Lian-Ming; Tzeng, Yuh-Tsuen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The present study attempted to replicate the previous results of Hu et al. (Learning and Instruction 35:85-93 2015) and further examined the boundary condition of tracing gesture whether its cognitive effect is merely comparable with other attention-guiding means, i.e., textual attention cueing, in two different learning tasks in nature. In two…

Ke, Fengfeng; M. Clark, Kathleen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This mixed-method study aims to explore the feasibility of using the game-based, multimodal representation of mathematical problems to support middle school students' practice and performance of math problem representation and solving. A three-dimensional architectural simulation game, called E-Rebuild, was developed to engage students in…

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…

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…

Pitta-Pantazi, Demetra; Chimoni, Maria; Christou, Constantinos – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Central in the frameworks that describe algebra from K-12 is the idea that algebraic thinking is not a single construct, but consists of several algebraic thinking strands. Validation studies exploring this idea are relatively scarce. This study used structural equation modeling techniques to analyze data of middle school students' performance on…

Rott, Benjamin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In this article, a theoretically derived grid is presented combining Pólya's phases of the problem-solving process with the way in which teachers emphasize their students' strategic diversity in problem solving. It is used to categorize previous results from the literature. In an empirical part, the grid is also used to describe mathematics…

Leong, Yew Hoong; Tay, Eng Guan; Toh, Tin Lam; Quek, Khiok Seng; Yap, Romina Ann Soon – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
We recognise that though teachers may participate in various forms of professional development (PD) programmes, learning that they may have gained in the PD may not always lead to corresponding perceivable changes in their classroom teaching. We offer a theoretical re-orientation towards this issue by introducing a construct we term…

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…

Sang, Wenjuan; Simpson, Amber – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Educators have been interested in the global maker movement as it provides hands-on learning opportunities for youths to enhance their knowledge and skills of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). This study aims to understand the maker movement from the perspective of frame analysis and collective action frames. Based on 33…

Doorman, Michiel; Bos, Rogier; de Haan, Dédé; Jonker, Vincent; Mol, Amy; Wijers, Monica – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study reports on a way to address twenty-first-century skills in mathematics education by organizing one-day mathematics challenges in the Netherlands. During such a day, students work in teams in school on an open-ended problem which aims to elicit skills like problem-solving, modeling, collaboration, and communication. The framework and the…

Huang, Tien-Chi; Lin, Weijane; Yueh, Hsiu-Ping – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Environmental education is intended to increase public awareness and knowledge about environmental issues and enhance individuals' problem-solving and decision-making skills by tackling problems in the real world. "Maker education," on the contrary, mostly relies on "problem-based" and "project-based learning"…

Becker, Sandra; Jacobsen, Michele – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Makerspaces provide a viable option for constructing and sharing knowledge in schools. Inherent in the designing, tinkering, and playing that learners engage in through making are competencies, such as the ability to create, problem solve, and innovate, decreed as critical by education policymakers. This paper summarizes results from a study in a…

Ke, Fengfeng; Clark, Kathleen M.; Uysal, Seyda – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
In this design-based research project, we investigated how and to what extent participating in architectural building and problem solving via a simulation game-based learning platform (called E-Rebuild) would facilitate mathematical practices of middle-school students in the informal learning setting. This study encompasses 2 iterative design…
