Gao, Jie – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Understanding the development of mathematics self-efficacy has important implications. Based on Bandura's four sources of self-efficacy, most previous studies mainly examined whether the sources predicted or correlated with mathematics self-efficacy, which might have oversimplified the underlying mechanism of self-efficacy development. This study…

Jeffries, David; Curtis, David D.; Conner, Lindsey N. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study investigates factors that influenced the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subject enrolment decisions of Year 12 students in Australia. Structural equation modelling (SEM) is used to develop a model using Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) and Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY) data…

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…

Ng, Clarence – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Many Australian students from poor families decline to take advanced mathematics when they reach senior secondary school, resulting in an under-representation of disadvantaged student groups in the advanced mathematics streams. It is important to promote disadvantaged students' aspirations for advanced mathematics given the significance of this…

Shin, Namsoo; Choi, Sung-Youn; Stevens, Shawn Y.; Krajcik, Joseph S. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
A coherent curriculum that clearly defines sets of ideas that build upon one another to meet desired learning goals can successfully support the development of meaningful understanding across time. This study explores the influence of a coherent curriculum as a systematic approach to aligning and sequencing specific ideas to support students in…

Jin, Hui; Shin, Hyo Jeong; Hokayem, Hayat; Qureshi, Farah; Jenkins, Thomas – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study describes how we developed a learning progression (LP) for systems thinking in ecosystems and collected preliminary validity evidence for the LP. In particular, the LP focuses on how middle and high school students use discipline-specific systems thinking concepts (e.g. feedback loops and energy pyramid) to analyze and explain the…

Sasson, Irit – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Research apprenticeship experiences provide a uniquely authentic context for deepening participants' understanding of the nature of science and encouraging them to choose STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) studies and careers. This study evaluated a STEM program for high school students who engaged in science research with…

Martínez-Sierra, Gustavo; Arellano-García, Yurdia; Hernández-Moreno, Antonia; Nava-Guzmán, Cristian – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Despite the importance of emotions in the professional life of teachers, there is not much research on daily emotions of mathematics teachers beyond general research on mathematics anxiety of mathematics teachers and pre-service teachers in elementary school. Using the theory of cognitive structure of emotions, this qualitative case study research…

Gómez, David Maximiliano; Dartnell, Pablo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The present study uses a short, computerized task to investigate individual differences among middle school students in terms of the intuitions and strategies that they use to compare fractions. To tap into their intuitions about fractions, students were presented with pairs of fractions on the screen for a limited time of 10 s. Fraction pairs to…

Chen, Chin-Sung; Lin, Jing-Wen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study explored how a 2-year, maker-centered science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) project-based learning (M-STEM-PjBL) curriculum aimed at leading students to be makers changed students, science teachers, and a rural middle school in Taiwan, where teachers were stressed due to the low birth rate and low grades in the…
