Shebane, Treasure Lindokuhle; Dehinbo, Johnson – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2020

Virtual Reality (VR) is an artificial environment that is created with software and presented to the user in such a way that the user suspends belief and accepts it as a real environment. Users interact with VR applications through on-screen toggles or with optional additional devices such as controllers, keyboard and mouse. However, when it comes…

Utterberg, Marie; Tallvid, Martin; Lundin, Johan; Lindström, Berner – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019

The use of digital textbooks in mathematics is increasing. However, the implementation of digital textbooks in schools is complicated. The objective of this paper is to understand how the introduction of a digital textbook affects the activity of teaching mathematics. An intervention was conducted where six mathematics teachers, with students in…

Seals, Christopher; Mehta, Swati; Wolf, Leigh Graves; Marcotte, Candace – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017

U.S. teachers have less time to plan, collaborate, and research related work in comparison to teachers in competing countries (NECTL) and time is needed for teachers to learn new skills, understand new concepts, and to integrate new ideas into their practice (Corcoran, 1995). The MSUrbanSTEM Teaching and Leadership Fellowship program is a…

Armoni, Michal – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2013

Abstraction is a key concept in CS, one of the most fundamental ideas underlying CS and its practice. However, teaching this soft concept to novices is a very difficult task, as discussed by many CSE experts. This paper discusses this issue, and suggests a general framework for teaching abstraction in CS to novices, a framework that would fit into…

Abramovich, Sergei; Brouwer, Peter – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

This paper was prepared in response to the Conference Board of Mathematical Sciences recommendations for the preparation of secondary teachers. It shows how using trigonometry as a conceptual tool in spreadsheet-based applications enables one to develop mathematical understanding in the context of constructing geometric representations of unit…

Kuhn, G. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2008

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) was tasked with identifying the key science concepts for science literacy in K-12 students in America (AAAS, 1990, 1993). The AAAS Atlas of Science Literacy (2001) has organized roughly half of these science concepts or benchmarks into fifty flow charts. Each flow chart or strand map…

Stewart, William J. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1984

Describes a system in which the computer, by interacting with an information bank, produces an individual or group diagnostic profile specifying the nature of the factors that contribute to mathematics difficulties and student variability. The computer also generates suggestions for remediating the learning difficulties and accommodating student…
