Falls, Zoe – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2020
Though today's problems are interconnected, complicated, and unpredictable, students continue to gain knowledge in discrete, standardized disciplinary silos. When subject integration is discussed in STEM and STEAM (STEM + Arts) literature, there is little consensus on what constitutes or should constitute integration of the disciplines.…

McAlpin, Elizabeth; Shilane, David; Kalaycioglu, Selin – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
According to the Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Learning (Mayer, 2009) learning with multimedia requires the integration of verbal and visual information (e.g., printed text and static images, narrated animation). Studies exploring the effects of dynamic versus static presentations yield mixed results. Few studies explore comparing dynamic versus…

Çekmez, Erdem; Güler, Mustafa – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
There is a large body of literature concerning the potential of dynamic geometry software (DGS) in the problem solving process. However, questions regarding how teaching should take place to prepare students to use DGS as a heuristic tool in non-routine problem situations seem to be overlooked. To address this gap in the literature, the current…

Kersey, Scott N. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
Student perceptions on teaching and learning are investigated in a side-to-side comparison between traditional (closed, CER) non-free course materials and free open educational resources (OER). The primary resources being compared are textbook and automatically-graded web-based homework systems. The results are based on a 32 item survey given to…

Araujo, Rosa Cendros; Floyd, Lisa; Gadanidis, George – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
With the increasing advocacy for Computational Thinking (CT) integration in K-12 education, it is important to consider how teacher education programs could better prepare teacher candidates (TCs). At the Faculty of Education at Western University, CT has been included in the curriculum as part of the teacher education program through the course…

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…

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…

Hsu, Yu-Chang; Ching, Yu-Hui; Baldwin, Sally – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
This research explored how K-16 educators learned physical computing, and developed as maker-educators in an online graduate course. With peer support and instructor guidance, these educators designed maker projects using Scratch and Makey Makey, and developed educational maker proposals with plans of teaching the topics of their choice in STEAM…

Curtis, Anthony – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
Student affect was measured and compared with their overall learning outcome scores. There was a significant difference among the student affect scores (F = 4.52; df = 3, 444; p < 0.01). Among the affect items measured, only Progress Monitoring Information was significantly regressed on overall learning outcome scores (F = 5.45; df = 1, 103; p…
