Litster, Kristy; Moyer-Packenham, Patricia S. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2020
Digital math apps on touch-screen devices have become popular as effective tools to support mathematics learning. Many apps incorporate gaming elements such as points, stars, coins, or storylines to increase student interest and motivation. However, there is limited research regarding the balance of gaming and mathematics elements and how it…

Trumble, Jason; Dailey, Debbie – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
Spatial visualization and mental rotations skills are considered a strong predictor of success in STEM fields (Wai, Lubinski, & Benbow, 2009). This study analyzed the malleability and amount of change in fourth through sixth grade students using the Revised PSVT:R. Participants engaged in a STEM camp driven by maker pedagogy and focused on the…

Cyr, Stéphane; Charland, Patrick; Riopel, Martin; Bruyère, Marie-Hélène – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
Serious video games (SVGs) are increasingly used as supplementary teaching tools for mathematics education. Several studies report their positive impact on student learning. However, these impacts are variable, and the success of the tools cannot be generalized or extended to all settings or disciplines without an in-depth look at the games…

Rich, Kathryn M.; Yadov, Aman; Zhu, Marissa – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
Moving among levels of abstraction is an important skill in mathematics and computer science, and students show similar difficulties when applying abstraction in each discipline. While computer science educators have examined ways to explicitly teach students how to consciously navigate levels of abstraction, these ideas have not been explored in…

Bulut, Aykut; Isiksal-Bostan, Mine – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
According to the principles of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics [NCTM, 2000], teaching mathematics needs well equipped teachers in terms of knowledge because of its complex structure. Moreover, teachers' knowledge and technology are an important issue to build up and enhance students' learning. Qualified teachers should know how and…

Alexander, Curby; Knezek, Gerald; Christensen, Rhonda; Tyler-Wood, Tandra – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
Declining academic achievement across U.S. schools, particularly in mathematics and science, has prompted several initiatives to increase the quality of teaching in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The National Science Foundation initiated the Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST) program in…

Marshall, Anne Marie; Lane, Savannah; Sweet, Savannah; Ruiz, Rachel – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
This multiple case study provides a lens into the ways three prospective elementary school teachers (PSTs) engaged in online discussion blogs when exploring the geometric concepts of area and perimeter. The online discussion blog protocol utilized reform-based instruction consistent with social constructivism. Through collaborative discussion and…

Kaya, Erdogan; Yesilyurt, Ezgi; Newley, Anna; Deniz, Hasan – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) and Computer Science (CS) are the driving forces of the United States prosperity. While there is a high demand to close the gap in STEM+CS jobs, there is little research in K-12, especially in K-5 level. Elementary teachers lack of self-confidence in STEM+CS and there is limited number of teacher…

Heindl, Manuela; Nader, Michael – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
The motivation to engage in a task is directly related to its perceived value according to Deci & Ryan (1985). Increasing motivation can lead to a higher enhanced learning achievement for the student. The question is if using digital technologies in inquiry-based learning lessons influences the learners' situationally perceived value of the…

Working, Christopher – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
The use of technology in elementary mathematics instruction tends to be low-level, despite its affordance of supporting the development of students' high-level reasoning ability. This study builds upon a sociocultural view of learning and was designed to determine what effect a technology-mediated dialogic learning intervention has on third-grade…

Connell, Michael; Abramovich, Sergei – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
This paper illustrates how the notion of Technology Immune Technology Enabled (TITE) problems (Abramovich, 2014), in this case an exploration of variations in surface area we refer to as Stamping Functions, might be incorporated into a K-6 mathematics methods class operating within an Action on Objects framework (Connell, 2001). TITE problems have…

Havu-Nuutinen, Sari – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
This study aims to develop team teaching approach at elementary school science by piloting the created model of teachers' collaboration in three different stages. In the research the model of team teaching is seen as teachers' collaboration in which university teachers, elementary school teachers and teacher students are working towards…

Hu, Helen; Garimella, Uma – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
This proceeding paper will report about a study that investigated how a group of elementary school teachers responded to a professional development training on Science and Technology as demonstrated in their perceived preparedness and comfort with teaching science, and their subsequent implementation with K-4 students. The results from the study…

Gadanidis, George – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
With the increased focus on computational thinking (CT) in education, it is important to investigate the affordances that CT may offer to support teaching and learning. This paper outlines five affordances of CT that may support elementary mathematics education, whose conceptualization was refined in a year-long study involving eight Grades 3-4…

Schmidt, Matthew; Fulton, Lori – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
Preparing students with 21st Century Skills through STEM related teaching is needed, especially at the elementary level. However, most teacher education preparation programs do not focus on STEM education. To provide an exemplary STEM unit, we transformed an inquiry-based unit on moon phases from a traditional science activity into a…
