Han, Moonhyun; Kim, Heui-baik – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study investigates how elementary students were able to construct a human respiratory system model and, in particular, how the process of reasoning contributed to their model through the use of analogy model activities. For this study, modeling activities that included the use of analogy models were designed and implemented. Over 4 class…

Guzey, S. Selcen; Ring-Whalen, Elizabeth A.; Harwell, Michael; Peralta, Yadira – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The emphasis of reform-oriented science education today focuses on engineering integration in K-12 science classrooms. However, there is little research, particularly longitudinal research, on how different approaches to engineering integration influence student learning and interest. To address this gap in the literature, this study analyzed a…

Lawrie, Gwendolyn A.; Schultz, Madeleine; Wright, Anthony H. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The successful transition from high school to tertiary chemistry studies relies on a student's ability to transfer prior understanding since many topics are extended during first year general chemistry. It was therefore of interest to investigate the perspectives of high school and tertiary teachers regarding which topics and concepts they…
