Hilton, Annette – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Research on the impact of the integration of technologies such as iPads on primary students' attitudes and engagement in mathematics is limited. Further, there have been claims that teachers' pedagogical choices can strongly influence the effectiveness of iPads for engaging students in mathematics. This paper presents an investigation of the…

Li, Mang; Zheng, Chunping; Liang, Jyh-Chong; Zhang, Yun; Tsai, Chin-Chung – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study explored the structural relationships among secondary school students' conceptions, self-regulation, and strategies of learning science in mainland China. Three questionnaires, namely conceptions of learning science (COLS), self-regulation of learning science (SROLS), and strategies of learning science (SLS) were developed for…

García-Carmona, Antonio; Criado, Ana M.; Cruz-Guzmán, Marta – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
A diagnostic study is presented of the prior experiences, conceptions, and pedagogical valuations of prospective primary teachers (PPTs) about experimental activities (ExA's) in science education. The participants were 121 PPTs who, in small teams, responded to various questions related to ExA. Their responses were analysed interpretively with…

Eshach, Haim; Kukliansky, Ida – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The present study uses the intuitive rules theory as a framework to examine whether some of the difficulties in dealing with errors and uncertainties observed among students in the university physics laboratory can stem from their use of intuitive rules. The study also examines the relationship between the use of intuitive rules and laboratory…

Dhindsa, Harkirat S.; Salleh, Siti-Zahrani Binti Haji Md – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Students who study science in single-sex and coeducational schools have attracted lots of attention from the education community. However, changes to students' attitudes toward science as they progress to higher grades in these schools are not clearly understood. The aim of this study was to compare the changes in attitudes toward science among…

Sahin, Alpaslan; Ekmekci, Adem; Waxman, Hersh C. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The purpose of this study is to investigate how students' high school experience, math and science efficacy, and student, parent, and teacher expectations affect their plans for college major choice after controlling for students' gender, ethnicity, and parental variables. Over 1500 9th grade students participated in the study. Using logistic…

Irish, Tobias; Kang, Nam-Hwa – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This multiple case study examines how teachers request students' use of their content knowledge and conceptual understandings from out-of-school experiences while reasoning about science concepts and the ways in which students perceive and respond to these requests. Three middle school teachers and a total of 57 middle school students participated…

Shahbari, Juhaina Awawdeh; Abu-Alhija, Fadia Nasser – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study explored the training of prospective and practicing mathematics teachers in alternative assessment and its impact on their attitudes toward alternative assessment methods and their beliefs about the nature of mathematics. Data were collected from 51 prospective teachers and 50 practicing teachers who took a course on alternative…

Holmes, Kathryn; Gore, Jennifer; Smith, Max; Lloyd, Adam – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Declining enrolments in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines and a lack of interest in STEM careers are concerning at a time when society is becoming more reliant on complex technologies. We examine student aspirations for STEM careers by drawing on surveys conducted annually from 2012 to 2015. School students in…

Uchida, Akitoshi; Mori, Kazuo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
International surveys repeatedly showed that Japanese children were good at mathematics but disliking it. We hypothesized there were a considerable number of "fake math-dislikes" among Japanese students who claimed they disliked mathematics explicitly but accepted it implicitly. To examine this hypothesis, we administered questionnaires…

Tippett, Christine D.; Milford, Todd M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in early childhood education is an area currently given little attention in the literature, which is unfortunate since young children are natural scientists and engineers. Here, we outline our mixed-methods design-based research investigation of a pre-kindergarten (Pre-K) classroom where two…

Berti, Anna Emilia; Barbetta, Valentina; Toneatti, Laura – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This study examines how third-graders' conceptions about the origin of species are affected by formal instruction and whether children can learn not only about evolution but also about natural selection. We interviewed the same group of third-grade children (8-9 years old) twice, before and after following a curriculum about these topics.…

Tesfamariam, Gebrekidan Mebrahtu; Lykknes, Annette; Kvittingen, Lise – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
In theory, practical work is an established part of university-level chemistry courses. However, mainly due to budget constraints, large class size, time constraints and inadequate teacher preparations, practical activities are frequently left out from chemistry classroom instruction in most developing countries. Small-scale chemistry (SSC)…

Leavy, Aisling; Hourigan, Mairead; Carroll, Claire – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This study reports entry-level mathematics attitudes of pre-service primary teachers entering an initial teacher education (ITE) program one decade apart. Attitudes of 360 pre-service primary teachers were compared to 419 pre-service teachers entering the same college of education almost one decade later. The latter experienced reform school…

Wasserman, Nicholas H.; Quint, Christa; Norris, Scott A.; Carr, Thomas – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
In an undergraduate Calculus III class, we explore the effect of "flipping" the instructional delivery of content on both student performance and student perceptions. Two instructors collaborated to determine daily lecture notes, assigned the same homework problems, and gave identical exams; however, compared to a more traditional…
