Lee, Ji-Eun; Lee, Mi Yeon – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study is an investigation of elementary preservice teachers' (PSTs') exploration of model breaking points in fractions. Eighty-three PSTs at two universities in the Midwestern and Southwestern regions of the USA were asked to explore the area model of fraction addition through a series of tasks and explain their reasoning in determining its…

Delgado-Rebolledo, Rosa; Zakaryan, Diana – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Currently, studies focusing on mathematics education pay more attention to the study of the lecturer's knowledge, aiming to understand this knowledge, its development, and how it is reflected in the practice of teaching. Following this line of research, the present study is based in the "Mathematics Teacher's Specialized Knowledge…

Vallera, Farah L.; Bodzin, Alec M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Agriculture can serve as a unifying and contextualizing topic that connects science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) subjects through similar knowledge, skills, and attitudes/beliefs (KSABs) exhibited in each. Agriculture can be an integral part of students' primary-level curriculum, providing authentic and relevant material for…

Vale, Colleen; Campbell, Coral; Speldewinde, Christopher; White, Pennie – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study explored the teaching and learning beliefs of qualified (in-field) secondary science teachers who were teaching mathematics out-of-field that is, without qualification. The relationship between secondary teachers' beliefs about their in-field subject--science and their out-of-field subject--mathematics was examined. The theory of…

Ivars, Pedro; Fernández, Ceneida; Llinares, Salvador – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The objective of this research is to understand how a learning trajectory supports pre-service primary teachers in their noticing of students' mathematical understanding. A total of 95 pre-service primary school teachers used a learning trajectory related to the part-whole meaning of the fraction concept to interpret students' understanding and…

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…

Jeffries, David; Curtis, David D.; Conner, Lindsey N. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study investigates factors that influenced the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subject enrolment decisions of Year 12 students in Australia. Structural equation modelling (SEM) is used to develop a model using Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) and Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY) data…

Martínez-Sierra, Gustavo; García-García, Javier; Valle-Zequeida, María; Dolores-Flores, Crisólogo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This qualitative research addresses the gap of studying the relationship between beliefs about assessment in mathematics and mathematics beliefs by identifying the (espoused) beliefs about assessment and their connections with the mathematical beliefs of 18 high school Mexican out-of-field mathematics teachers (i.e. teachers without formal…

Perry, Lindsey – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Numeric relational reasoning is a foundational mathematical idea for young children and is predictive of future success in mathematics. However, no readily available assessments exist that fully assess relational reasoning in young children. RTI International developed a Relational Reasoning subtask for potential inclusion on the Early Grade…

Ng, Oi-Lam; Ferrara, Francesca – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In this paper, we build on a previously developed notion of 'learning as Making' to examine mathematics thinking and learning in a highly transformative and technological Making environment: one that involves a handheld 3D printing technology which enables 3D models to be created instantly via one's moving hand. In particular, we present two…

Pearce, Erin; Stewart, Morgan; Malkoc, Ummuhan; Ivy, Ronald; Weinburgh, Molly – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
A learning format gaining attention that encourages language acquisition in science is the use of dynamic models as instructional tools. This grounded theory investigates the impact of the dynamic food chain model as an alternative lesson for teaching food chains. The researchers examined the impact of a paper-based activity and a dynamic model…

Straub, Miranda C. P. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In this study, students enrolled in a basic physics class participated in one of the online citizen science projects available on the Zooniverse website (www.zooniverse.org) as a homework assignment. They then wrote a 300-500-word reflection about their experience addressing several questions given as prompts. The analysis of the responses showed…

Smith, Thomas J.; Walker, David A.; Chen, Hsiang-Ting; Hong, Zuway-R. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The present study examined data from the 2015 Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study to address cross-cultural differences in 4th grade students' attitudes towards science and how students' sense of school belonging (SSSB) scores were related to attitude towards science. Regression results indicated that SSSB emerged as a…

Ng, Clarence – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Many Australian students from poor families decline to take advanced mathematics when they reach senior secondary school, resulting in an under-representation of disadvantaged student groups in the advanced mathematics streams. It is important to promote disadvantaged students' aspirations for advanced mathematics given the significance of this…
