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…

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…

Lobato, Joanne; Walker, Carren – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019

Online math videos for student learning are abundant; yet they are surprisingly uniform in their monologic, expository mode of presentation and their emphasis on procedural skill. In response, we created an alternative model of online math videos that feature the unscripted dialogue of secondary school students, who convey sources of confusion and…

Lovett, Jennifer N.; Dick, Lara K.; McCulloch, Allison W.; Sherman, Milan F.; Martin, Kristi – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019

The purpose of this study is to examine the ways in which PSMTs' professionally notice middle school students' mathematical thinking on a technology enhanced mathematical task. Findings show that every preservice mathematics teacher included a discussion of the middle school students' interaction with the technology in their noticing prompts,…

Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019

This presentation will focus on the use of live action and video instruction as a method of content dissemination and to motivate students in learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. Specifically, this area, dubbed "edutainment", will chronicle different interactions with students, teachers and…

Stonier, Francis; Teed, Kenneth; Westine, Carl – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017

The use of surveys and GIS mapping allows one to more readily examine spatial relationships that may occur. Greater attention may be paid to understanding these clusters and develop better individualized interventions. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the bullying in a population of nearly 600,000 students who represent a population of…

Wang, Shiang-Kwei; Hsu, Hui-Yin – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017

Technology integration in K-12 classrooms is usually teacher-centered and has insufficient impact on students' learning. The purpose of this project is to facilitate science teachers' use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) as cognitive tools to shift their practices from teacher-centered methods to constructivist,…

Terrazas-Arellanes, Fatima E.; Strycker, Lisa A.; Walden, Emily D.; Gallard, Alejandro – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017

Inquiry-based learning methods, coupled with advanced technology, hold promise for closing the science literacy gap for English learners (ELs) and students with learning difficulties (SWLDs). Project ESCOLAR (Etext Supports for Collaborative Online Learning and Academic Reading) created collaborative online learning units for middle school science…

Balentyne, Phoebe; Varga, Mary Alice – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016

As online and blended learning gain more popularity in education, it becomes more important to understand their effects on student learning. The purpose of this study was to explore the effects of self-paced blended learning of mathematics on the attitudes and achievement of 26 high ability middle school students, and investigate the relationship…

Winburg, Karin; Chamberlain, Barbara; Valdez, Alfred; Trujillo, Karen; Stanford, Theodore B. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016

This "Math Snacks" intervention measured 741 fifth grade students' gains in conceptual understanding of core math concepts after game-based learning activities. Teachers integrated four "Math Snacks" games and related activities into instruction on ratios, coordinate plane, number systems, fractions and decimals. Using a…

Anderson-Pence, Katie; Moyer-Packenham, Patricia – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016

This exploratory study examined the influence of different virtual manipulative (VM) types on the nature of student pairs' techno-mathematical discourse (TMD). Three fifth-grade student pairs participated in 9 sessions of mathematics instruction using VMs. The study compared three VM types: linked, pictorial, and tutorial. Students' levels of…

Corum, Kimberly; Garofalo, Joe – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016

Surface area is consistently identified as a curriculum standard for K-12 students and it regularly appears on national and international assessments. Recently, many schools began acquiring digital fabrication and advanced manufacturing equipment. The growing use of digital fabrication in classrooms raises the question of whether or not this…

Herro, Danielle; Quigley, Cassie – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016

This paper examines the implementation practices of a 6th grade middle school teacher enacting STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) teaching in his classroom after participating in a 45-hour STEAM professional development. Case study is used to detail the process, successes, and challenges. Project-based learning, technology…

Gustafson, Brenda; Mahaffy, Peter; Martin, Brian – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015

This paper focuses on one Grade 5 class (9 females; 9 males) who worked in student-pairs to view five digital learning object (DLO) lessons created by the authors and meant to introduce students to the nature of models, the particle nature of matter, and physical change. Specifically, the paper focuses on whether DLO design elements could assist…
