Yeo, Lian-Ming; Tzeng, Yuh-Tsuen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The present study attempted to replicate the previous results of Hu et al. (Learning and Instruction 35:85-93 2015) and further examined the boundary condition of tracing gesture whether its cognitive effect is merely comparable with other attention-guiding means, i.e., textual attention cueing, in two different learning tasks in nature. In two…

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…

Arican, Muhammet; Kuzu, Okan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study investigates preservice middle school mathematics teachers' understanding of statistics and probability and provides a cognitive diagnostic assessment of their strengths and weaknesses on these subjects. A statistical reasoning test that included 15 multiple-choice and 5 open-ended items was developed from the perspective of the…

Shapira-Lishchinsky, Orly; Zavelevsky, Erez – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study aims to explore the different appearances of parental interactions based on principal, teacher, and student reports of the 8th grade Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study 2011 assessments in Israel and how the appearances of parental interactions relate to math achievements. We conducted a multilevel SEM on 147…

Ke, Fengfeng; M. Clark, Kathleen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This mixed-method study aims to explore the feasibility of using the game-based, multimodal representation of mathematical problems to support middle school students' practice and performance of math problem representation and solving. A three-dimensional architectural simulation game, called E-Rebuild, was developed to engage students in…

Elias, Henrique Rizek; Ribeiro, Alessandro Jacques; Savioli, Angela Marta Pereira das Dores – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Our goal in this article is to organise an epistemological matrix for the concept of rational number that contemplates its different meanings. Aiming at understanding the various ways to signify the rational numbers and based on the theoretical-methodological approach of conceptual profiles, we produce and analyse data from various sources,…

Kim, Gahyoung; Ko, Yeonjoo; Lee, Hyunju – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study aimed to investigate how the community-based socioscientific issues program (SSI-COMM) affected middle school students' sense of place (SOP) and character development as citizens. We designed and implemented SSI-COMM on fine dust, abandoned pets, and recycling issues that were closely related to the students' local communities. SSI-COMM…

Tabach, Michal; Hershkowitz, Rina; Azmon, Shirly; Dreyfus, Tommy – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
We focus on teachers' ways of leading whole class discussions (WCDs) in mathematics, with the goal of uncovering their traces (if any) in their students' responses (a) while participating in the WCDs and (b) in the written responses in a final test. For this purpose, two 8th-grade probability classes learning a 10-lesson unit with different…

Pitta-Pantazi, Demetra; Chimoni, Maria; Christou, Constantinos – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Central in the frameworks that describe algebra from K-12 is the idea that algebraic thinking is not a single construct, but consists of several algebraic thinking strands. Validation studies exploring this idea are relatively scarce. This study used structural equation modeling techniques to analyze data of middle school students' performance on…

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…

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…

Erkek, Özlem; Isiksal Bostan, Mine – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The aim of the present study was to investigate the nature of global argumentation structures of prospective middle school mathematics teachers in a technology enhanced environment. A qualitative case study was conducted with 8 participants from an Elementary Mathematics Education undergraduate program of one of the public universities in Ankara.…

Lesseig, Kristin; Firestone, Jonah; Morrison, Judy; Slavit, David; Holmlund, Tamara – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Despite the increasing number of inclusive STEM schools, little is known about the cultural dimensions that influence STEM curriculum and instruction within these schools. This paper describes research conducted at three inclusive STEM schools, one each at the elementary, middle, and high school level. We explored similarities and differences in…

Tas, Yasemin; Aksoy, Gökhan; Cengiz, Ekrem – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study investigates the effect of design-based science (DBS) instruction on students' learning of electrical energy and students' metacognitive strategy use in science. Two classes of seventh-grade students participated in the study. DBS instruction was used in the treatment group, while the comparison group was taught the unit with…

Gómez, David Maximiliano; Dartnell, Pablo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The present study uses a short, computerized task to investigate individual differences among middle school students in terms of the intuitions and strategies that they use to compare fractions. To tap into their intuitions about fractions, students were presented with pairs of fractions on the screen for a limited time of 10 s. Fraction pairs to…
