Ketamo, Harri; Alajaaski, Jarkko – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2008
A revising/replenishment study course in basic mathematics is experienced as being almost a necessity at the beginning of technology studies at the Tampere University of Technology, Pori, Finland. This is to avoid early dropouts in actual engineering mathematics courses. Experimental research on factors explaining successful revision of…

Sedig, Kamran – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2008
Many children do not like learning mathematics. They do not find mathematics fun, motivating, and engaging, and they think it is difficult to learn. Computer-based games have the potential and possibility of addressing this problem. This paper proposes a strategy for designing game-based learning environments that takes advantage of the…

Walker, Sandra; Senger, Elizabeth – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2007
Algebra has been identified as the foundational course for all other mathematics courses. Yet, research has shown that African-American students are low achievers in all strands of mathematics (NCES, 2001). Computers, on the other hand, have been marketed as an instructional tool to teach and reinforce classroom instructions. This study…

Kay, Robin; Knaack, Liesel – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2007
A learning object is an interactive web-based tool that supports learning by enhancing, amplifying, and guiding the cognitive processes of a learner. To date, no formal research has been done on the use of learning objects in secondary school science classrooms. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the use of learning objects developed for…

Chen, Chiu-Jung; Liu, Pei-Lin – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2007
This study evaluated the effects of a personalized computer-assisted mathematics problem-solving program on the performance and attitude of Taiwanese fourth grade students. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the personalized computer-assisted program improved student performance and attitude over the nonpersonalized program.…

Khadivi, Mohammad – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2006
The purpose of this article is five-fold: (1) to elaborate on mathematical pedagogy, the application of mathematics, the misunderstanding and the myth around this powerful language; (2) to explain the differences between theoretical solutions and constructive solutions; (3) to explain the influence of technology and its pivotal--in many cases,…

MacKinnon, Gregory R.; Williams, Peter – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2006
The notion of problem-based physics laboratories enhanced by computer technology has been coined "studio physics" (Wilson, 1994) and has been practised at various institutions for some time (Cummings, Marx, Thornton, & Kuhl, 1999; Williams, MacLatchy, Backman, & Retson, 1997). In recent years, new technology tools have been available to supplement…

Capobianco, Brenda; Lehman, James – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2006
Prospective teachers and teacher educators both confront practical and philosophical issues in attempting to integrate technology into their practice. This paper describes a case study of a science teacher educator, a novice in instructional technology, who integrated technology into an elementary science methods course, with the support of a PT3…

Abramovich, Sergei; Norton, Anderson – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2006
This paper introduces technology-based teaching ideas that facilitate the development of qualitative reasoning techniques in the context of quadratic equations with parameters. It reflects on activities designed for and used with prospective secondary mathematics teachers in accord with standards for teaching and recommendations for teachers in…

Forgasz, Helen – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2006
Included in contemporary mathematics curricula is the expectation that mathematics teachers will use technology--computers and calculators--in their classrooms. It is widely believed in Australian educational circles and in society at large that students' learning will be enhanced by engaging with these technologies. For children to use computers…

Abramovich, Sergei; Cho, Eun Kyeong – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2006
This article attempts to extend current research and development activities related to the use of technology in problem posing, to early grades mathematics. It is motivated by the authors' work with elementary preservice teachers toward this goal, both at the graduate and undergraduate levels. New York State Learning Standards for K-4 mathematics…

Eichler, Marcelo Leandro; Xavier, Paulo Rafael; Araujo, Roberto Costa; Forte, Rafael Castro; Del Pino, Jose Claudio – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2005
The goals of this paper are to describe some characteristics of the pedagogical project of the "Carbopolis" software and some programming solutions that were found during the computational implementation of this software. Relative to the first goal, some pedagogical features that are considered necessary to developing computerized learning…

Klopfer, Eric; Yoon, Susan; Um, Tricia – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2005
In this paper, we report on a program of study called Adventures in Modeling that challenges the traditional scientific method approach in science classrooms using StarLogo modeling software. Drawing upon previous successful efforts with older students, and the related work of other projects working with younger students, we explore: (a) What can…

Stroup, Walter M. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2005
A critical issue related to the use of simulation environments in school-based learning is the relationship between the use of these environments and the structure of traditional curricula. Teachers are often caught in the bind of attempting to address significantly raised standards for what all students should know, yet receiving very little…

Rowhani, Sonja; Sedig, Kamran – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2005
E-books promise to become a widespread delivery mechanism for educational resources. However, current e-books do not take full advantage of the power of computing tools. In particular, interaction with the content is often reduced to navigation through the information. This article investigates how adding interactive visuals to an e-book…
