Anderson, John O.; Lin, Huann-Shyang; Treagust, David F.; Ross, Shelley P.; Yore, Larry D. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2007
Large-scale assessments of student achievement provide a window into the broadly defined concepts of literacy and generate information about levels and types of student achievement in relation to some of the correlates of learning, such as student background, attitudes, and perceptions, and perhaps school and home characteristics. This paper…

Hsu, Pei-Ling; Yang, Wen-Gin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2007
Systemic functional linguistics (SFL) was the foundation for this study that explored the effect of science text and image integration on grade 9 students' reading comprehension. Two texts in Chinese on the moon phase with different print and image integration were compared--a traditional textbook (TT) used in Taiwanese junior high schools and a…

Keraro, Fred Nyabuti; Wachanga, Samuel W.; Orora, William – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2007
This study investigated the effects of using the cooperative concept mapping (CCM) teaching approach on secondary school students' motivation in biology. A non equivalent control group design under the quasi-experimental research was used in which a random sample of four co-educational secondary schools was used. The four schools were randomly…

Moseley, Bryan James; Okamoto, Yukari; Ishida, Junichi – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2007
Using cognitive ethnography as a guiding framework, we investigated US and Japanese fourth-grade teachers' domain knowledge of key fraction representations in individual interviews. The framework focused on revealing cultural trends in participants' organization of knowledge and their interpretations of that organization. Our analyses of the…

Olson, Joanne K. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2007
A research-based framework for teaching science is a heuristic tool used to help preservice teachers conceptualize many complexities of teaching while making explicit the strategy to use a research-based body of professional knowledge to inform instructional decision-making (Clough, 2003, Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association…

Taylor, Neil; Corrigan, Gerry – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2007
A series of interviews was conducted with NSW primary teachers, working within a rural context, to obtain their views about the benefits of using ICT in the delivery of the primary curriculum and specifically primary science. The interviews were also used to determine how these teachers were using ICT and if they had any specific training needs.…

Vlaardingerbroek, Barend; Taylor, T. G. Neil – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2007
The recent structural reforms in New Zealand education have given schools and teachers unprecedented freedom in curricular design and delivery. Using official educational award statistics for 2004 and data arising from a study of 23 schools' upper secondary science curricula in the same year, this study represents an early monitoring of the impact…

Acar, Burcin; Tarhan, Leman – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2007
The present study was conducted to investigate the degree of effectiveness of cooperative learning instruction over a traditional approach on 11th grade students' understanding of electrochemistry. The study involved forty-one 11th grade students from two science classes with the same teacher. To determine students' misconceptions concerning…

Scantlebury, Kathryn; Baker, Dale; Sugi, Ayumi; Yoshida, Atsushi; Uysal, Sibel – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2007
This paper describes how the patriarchal structure of Japanese society and its notions of women, femininity, and gendered stereotypes produced strong cultural barriers to increasing the participation of females in science education. Baseline data on attitudes toward science and the perceptions of gender issues in science education, academic major…

Lim-Teo, Suat Khoh; Chua, Kwee Gek; Cheang, Wai Kwong; Yeo, Joseph K. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2007
Mathematics pedagogical content knowledge (MPCK) of teachers cannot be easily defined but is a complex concept integrating generic pedagogical knowledge, mathematics teaching methodology as well as knowledge of the discipline of mathematics. It is the objective of mathematics methodology courses in teacher preparation programmes to begin the…

Ouertatani, Latifa; Dumon, Alain; Trabelsi, Malika Ayadi; Soudani, Mohamed – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2007
In this work, we propose to identify the knowledge that Tunisian grade 10 students build up concerning acids and bases. Thus, after learning, we have proceeded by giving a paper and pencil task to students of two levels of teaching. The results obtained allow us to say that the assimilated knowledge is transitory; that the students have a worse…

Kuchemann, Dietmar; Hoyles, Celia – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2006
We report some findings of the Longitudinal Proof Project, which investigated patterns in high-attaining students' mathematical reasoning in algebra and in geometry and development in their reasoning, by analyses of students' responses to three annual proof tests. The paper focuses on students' responses to one non-standard geometry item. It…

Babai, Reuven; Brecher, Tali; Stavy, Ruth; Tirosh, Dina – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2006
One theoretical framework which addresses students' conceptions and reasoning processes in mathematics and science education is the intuitive rules theory. According to this theory, students' reasoning is affected by intuitive rules when they solve a wide variety of conceptually non-related mathematical and scientific tasks that share some common…

Buntting, Cathy; Coll, Richard Kevin; Campbell, Alison – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2006
Introductory tertiary level science classes (i.e., at the university or post-compulsory school level) including those for biology face increasing diversity in intake. Previous research has indicated university level teachers assume a certain level of prior knowledge which may or may not be possessed by such students. This report focuses on the use…

von Aufschnaiter, Claudia – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2006
Research on conceptual change is still a powerful framework for empirical investigations on students' learning of science. During recent years, an increasing body of research has explored students' concepts prior and subsequent to instruction, leading to an extensive documentation of students' concepts including the difficulties and opportunities…
