Dogruer, Sule Sahin; Akyuz, Didem – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This design research investigated the mathematical practices that eight graders (14-year-old students) developed when learning about prisms, cylinders, and their surface areas. An inquiry-based learning environment was created for students to engage in argumentation. The instruction was enriched by use of a dynamic geometry software, namely…

Belland, Brian R.; Weiss, D. Mark; Kim, Nam Ju; Piland, Jacob; Gu, Jiangyue – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
In this study, we investigated how high school credit recovery students worked in small groups and used computer-based scaffolds to conduct scientific inquiry in a problem-based learning unit centered on water quality. We examined how students searched for and evaluated information from different sources, and used evidence to support their claims.…

Schüler-Meyer, Alexander; Prediger, Susanne; Kuzu, Taha; Wessel, Lena; Redder, Angelika – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
To what degree can multilingual students profit from bilingual teaching approaches, even when they lack experience in the academic or technical register in their home languages? This study explores this research question in a mixed methods design for a German/Turkish bilingual intervention aimed at fostering conceptual understanding of fractions…

Rollinde, E. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The Human Orrery is a representation of the Solar System at a human scale, on which positions of planets over time are symbolized by different discs. Learners can then walk along the orbits of the planets with the right pace. This pedagogical tool uses the principles of enacted cognition to promote a better understanding of the scientific laws of…

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…

Kim, Hee-jeong – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Teachers' ways of using curriculum materials create not only meaningful learning opportunities for students but also opportunities for teachers to learn and change their teaching practices; however, not enough research has investigated precisely how. This study investigates how teachers' implementation of innovative curriculum materials…

Revina, Shintia; Leung, Frederick Koon Shing – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Past studies have raised caution over educational transfer in mathematics education. The idea that an instructional approach to teaching and learning of mathematics can truly be universal and implemented across all cultures was challenged, as some aspects of the approach might be too closely bound up with the specific context where it was…

Mason, Lucia; Zaccoletti, Sonia; Carretti, Barbara; Scrimin, Sara; Diakidoy, Irene-Anna N. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Text is the primary tool to learn disciplinary knowledge in school. Text-based learning is shaped by a complex interplay between the text and reader characteristics. This study examined the role of text structure and inhibition in conceptual learning about energy. Inhibition implies the ability to block dominant but inappropriate responses…

Brown, Rachael Eriksen; Bogiages, Christopher A. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Teachers often struggle to utilize reform-based teaching strategies in their first few years of teaching for many reasons (Ball, Thames & Phelps, Journal of Teacher Education 59, 389-407, 2008; Berlin & White, "International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education" 8, 97-115, 2010; Frykholm & Glasson, "School…

Guzey, S. Selcen; Ring-Whalen, Elizabeth A.; Harwell, Michael; Peralta, Yadira – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The emphasis of reform-oriented science education today focuses on engineering integration in K-12 science classrooms. However, there is little research, particularly longitudinal research, on how different approaches to engineering integration influence student learning and interest. To address this gap in the literature, this study analyzed a…

Ubuz, Behiye; Erdogan, Beril – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
In this study, effects of 2 physical manipulative instructions on students' geometrical knowledge acquisition were compared. Geometry topics' presentation was conducted via using physical manipulative and the practice stage in two different forms: (1) practice consisting of problems supported with explicit metacognitive questions and (2) practice…

Baranovich, Diana-Lea; Fong, Pei-Chin; Hutagalung, Fonny – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The study aims to have a better understanding on the parental scaffolding in mathematics homework among preschoolers in the Malaysian context. This is achieved by exploring to what extent Malaysian parents provide scaffolding to their preschoolers in mathematics homework interactions. Investigations about the strategies employed by the parents…

Foster, Colin; Inglis, Matthew – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Mathematics teacher continuing professional development (CPD) is widely recognised to encompass more than attending courses and engaging in formal activities with colleagues in school. Teachers' professional reading is an under-researched aspect of CPD, which takes place out of view, but which has the potential to shape teachers' beliefs and…

Park, Mimi; Lee, Eun-Jung – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Equiprobability bias (EB) is one of the frequently observed misconceptions in probability education in K-12 and can be affected by a problem context. As future teachers, preservice teachers need to have a stable understanding of probability and to have the knowledge to identify EB in their students regardless of the problem context. However, there…

Wei, Bing; Ou, Yitong – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao, in the Greater China Region, have similar yet different educational systems and curriculum standards, and each has performed well in international tests for science achievement. Using revised Bloom's taxonomy, this study analyzed and explored the similarities and differences among these four Chinese…
