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…

Babalola, Femi E.; Lambourne, Robert J.; Swithenby, Stephen J. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Practical work is widely seen as an important element of the science curriculum. However, there is a long-standing debate about the educational aims of practical work and about why it is important. Aims suggested include the contributions that practical work can make to understanding, to the acquisition of professional and personal skills, and to…

Redmond, Petrea; Gutke, Hannah – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
An e-mentoring program was established to support females who were studying or intending to study or work in Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths related disciplines (STEM) and were located in regional, rural or remote areas. Mentors and mentees were matched based on their shared interests, fields of study and area of employment. The…

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…

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…

Pearce, Erin; Stewart, Morgan; Malkoc, Ummuhan; Ivy, Ronald; Weinburgh, Molly – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
A learning format gaining attention that encourages language acquisition in science is the use of dynamic models as instructional tools. This grounded theory investigates the impact of the dynamic food chain model as an alternative lesson for teaching food chains. The researchers examined the impact of a paper-based activity and a dynamic model…

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…
