Thao-Do, Thi Phuong; Bac-Ly, Dang Thi; Yuenyong, Chokchai – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Constructivism was introduced to Vietnam through many ways such as workshops, books, the Internet, and so on. However, due to the lack of professional education, fundamental ideas of constructivist learning perhaps were missing or neglected through classroom activities. Furthermore, due to the influence of culture and society, Vietnamese…

Chung, Yoonsook; Yoo, Jungsook; Kim, Sung-Won; Lee, Hyunju; Zeidler, Dana L. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Communication skills are one of the most important competencies for 21st century global citizens. Our guiding presupposition was that socioscientific issues (SSIs) could be used as an effective pedagogical tool for promoting students' communication skills by increasing peer interactions, stimulating students' reasoning, and in constructing shared…

Aguilar, Mario Sánchez; Rosas, Alejandro; Zavaleta, Juan Gabriel Molina; Romo-Vázquez, Avenilde – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The aim of this study is to describe the images that a group of high-achieving Mexican students hold of mathematicians. For this investigation, we used a research method based on the Draw-A-Scientist Test (DAST) with a sample of 63 Mexican high school students. The group of students' pictorial and written descriptions of mathematicians assisted us…

Guberman, Raisa – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
One of the key courses in the mathematics teacher education program in Israel is arithmetic, which engages in contents which these pre-service mathematics teachers (PMTs) will later teach at school. Teaching arithmetic involves knowledge about the essence of the concept of "number" and the development thereof, calculation methods and…

Zhang, Qiaoping; Barkatsas, Tasos; Law, Huk-Yuen; Leu, Yuh-Chyn; Seah, Wee Tiong; Wong, Ngai-Ying – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
It has become increasingly recognized that what teachers and students value affect teaching and learning in general and in the area of mathematics in particular. Yet, the extent to which this is so varies across cultural regions. In recent years, how the ethnic Chinese teach and learn mathematics has attracted much attention worldwide. It is…

Dreher, Anika; Kuntze, Sebastian; Lerman, Stephen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Dealing with multiple representations and their connections plays a key role for learners to build up conceptual knowledge in the mathematics classroom. Hence, professional knowledge and views of mathematics teachers regarding the use of multiple representations certainly merit attention. In particular, investigating such views of preservice…

Chang, Briana L.; Cromley, Jennifer G.; Tran, Nhi – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Coordination of multiple representations (CMR) is widely recognized as a critical skill in mathematics and is frequently demanded in reform calculus textbooks. However, little is known about the prevalence of coordination tasks in such textbooks. We coded 707 instances of CMR in a widely used reform calculus textbook and analyzed the distributions…

Ju, Mi-Kyung; Moon, Jong-Eun; Song, Ryoon-Jin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
From a multicultural perspective, this research investigated to what extent Korean mathematics textbooks use history of mathematics. The results show even though educational use of history presented in Korean mathematics textbooks may provide a rich outlook, it does not encourage a fundamental change in the educational practice of school…

Ng, Betsy L. L.; Liu, W. C.; Wang, John C. K. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The present study focused on an in-depth understanding of student motivation and self-regulated learning in mathematics and science through cluster analysis. It examined the different learning profiles of motivational beliefs and self-regulatory strategies in relation to perceived teacher autonomy support, basic psychological needs (i.e. autonomy,…

Schademan, Alfred R. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
The purpose of this study is to examine the kinds of reasoning that African American young men learn and develop when playing Spades, a common cultural practice in African American communities. The qualitative study found that the Spades players routinely consider multiple variables and their mathematical relationships when making decisions. The…

Palha, Sonia; Dekker, Rijkje; Gravemeijer, Koeno – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
It remains difficult to foster problem-solving and mathematical-reasoning capabilities in classrooms where students and teachers are accustomed to the more traditional forms of education. Several studies suggest that this difficulty might be related to the kind of knowledge students acquire in such environments, which could be fragmented and…

Yu, Kuang-Chao; Fan, Szu-Chun; Lin, Kuen-Yi – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
Problem solving is often challenging for students because they do not understand the problem-solving process (PSP). This study presents a three-stage, context-based, problem-solving, learning activity that involves watching detective films, constructing a context-simulation activity, and introducing a project design to enable students to construct…

Belova, Nadja; Eilks, Ingo; Feierabend, Timo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
Role-plays are a common pedagogical tool in the Social Sciences. As an imitation of societal practices, role-plays are thought to support the development of argumentation and decision-making skills among learners. However, argumentation and decision making are also goals in science education in general and in socioscientific issues-oriented…

Maschietto, Michela – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
This paper presents the analysis of two teaching experiments carried out in the context of the mathematics laboratory in a primary school (grades 3 and 4) with the use of the pascaline Zero + 1, an arithmetical machine. The teaching experiments are analysed by coordinating two theoretical frameworks, i.e. the instrumental approach and the Theory…
