Choi, Aeran; Hand, Brian – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study examines how grade 5 students engage with the aspects (construct and critique) of argument in an online asynchronous discussion combined with in-class wrap-up discussion. Grade 5 students in a rural public school engaged in a "human health investigation" unit using an argument-based inquiry approach followed by online…

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…

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…

Ross, Wendy; Vallée-Tourangeau, Frédéric; Van Herwegen, Jo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Manipulative artefacts are considered useful scaffolds of arithmetic during early years education, but their use is considered less important as children get older. Yet adult arithmetic performance often recruits artefacts to improve accuracy and efficiency, and so the same benefits should accrue to children beyond early years. We propose that…

Erman, Erman; Liliasari, Liliasari; Ramdani, Maelita; Wakhidah, Nur – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study aimed to promote scientific literacy among sports majors who were not interested in learning about science via a course called Addressing Macroscopic Issues in Biochemistry and Sports (AMIBAS). The participants were 54 students majoring in sports at an Indonesian university. Using a 1 group pre-post study design, students were required…

Nygård Larsson, Pia; Jakobsson, Anders – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In this article, we assume that discursive language aspects of science education are highly intertwined with students' knowledge-building and meaning-making in science. In an empirical case study, we investigate secondary students' (ages 15 to 16) discursive language use during group interactions. The focus is on how students define and explain…

Rott, Benjamin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In this article, a theoretically derived grid is presented combining Pólya's phases of the problem-solving process with the way in which teachers emphasize their students' strategic diversity in problem solving. It is used to categorize previous results from the literature. In an empirical part, the grid is also used to describe mathematics…

Schoenfeld, Alan H. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This essay focuses on a particular subset of educational research, questions that are researchable and that, ultimately, will make a positive difference for the educational enterprise. It argues that to be researchable, tasks need to be addressable in operational terms -- that questions that hinge on values (e.g. "are large small classes…

Stylianides, Gabriel J.; Stylianides, Andreas J. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In this paper, we argue that posing new researchable questions in educational research is a dynamic process that reflects the field's growing understanding of the web of potentially influential factors surrounding the examination of a particular phenomenon of interest. We illustrate this thesis by drawing on a strand of mathematics education…

Cai, Jinfa; Hwang, Stephen; Hiebert, James; Hohensee, Charles; Morris, Anne; Robison, Victoria – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Significant research in science and mathematics education should advance the field's knowledge and understanding of the teaching and learning of science and mathematics. How, then, should the significance of a research question in science and mathematics education be assessed? And, when disseminating the findings of research, how should the…

Aguilar, Mario Sánchez – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This paper presents a reflection on the importance of replication studies in the development of the field of mathematics education. Based on a literature review, it explains what replication studies are, and why they are important for our field. It also addresses the issue of why, despite their apparent importance, replication studies remain…
