Leung, Allen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
How to pedagogically integrate the four STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) disciplines is a main discussion issue in STEM education. Inquiry-based learning, mathematical modeling, and tool-based pedagogy could go hand in hand to provide a possible integrated STEM pedagogical framework for mathematics and science. This…

Alhendal, Dalal; Marshman, Margaret; Grootenboer, Peter – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
To improve the quality of education, the Kuwaiti Ministry of Education has encouraged schools to implement inquiry-based instruction. This study identifies psychosocial factors that predict teachers' intention to use inquiry-based instruction in their science classrooms. An adapted model of Ajzen's (1985) theory of planned behaviour--the Science…

Blonder, Ron; Rap, Shelley; Mamlok-Naaman, Rachel; Hofstein, Avi – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
The present research is part of a longitude research study regarding the questioning behavior of students in the inquiry chemistry laboratory in Israel. We found that students who were involved in learning chemistry by the inquiry method ask more and higher-level questions. However, throughout the years, we have observed that differences between…

Im, Sungmin; Kim, Ok-Ja – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
For over two decades, there has been increasing concern regarding the science learning of disadvantaged students such as indigenous or disabled students. The academic achievement of students with hearing impairment has been seen as relatively low. This low achievement has been mainly due to students' poor literal ability and not because of…

Melville, Wayne; Bartley, Anthony; Fazio, Xavier – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2013
This article considers the impact of scaffolding on pre-service science teachers' constitution of identities as teachers of inquiry. This scaffolding has consisted of 2 major components, a unit on current electricity which encompasses the inquiry continuum and an open inquiry which is situated in context of classroom practice. Our analysis…

Kim, Minkee; Lavonen, Jari; Juuti, Kalle; Holbrook, Jack; Rannikmae, Miia – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2013
In inquiry-based science education, there have been gradual shifts in research interests: the nature of scientific method, the debates on the effects of inquiry learning, and, recently, inquiry teaching. However, many in-service programs for inquiry teaching have reported inconsistent results due to the static view of classroom inquiries and due…

Nantawanit, Nantawan; Panijpan, Bhinyo; Ruenwongsa, Pintip – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
Most students think animals are more interesting than plants as a study topic believing that plants are inferior to animals because they are passive and unable to respond to external challenges, particularly biological invaders such as microorganisms and insect herbivores. The purpose of this study was to develop an inquiry-based learning unit,…
