Fathurrohman, Maman; Porter, Anne – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012
Teaching and learning of mathematics are integral parts of societies throughout the world. The fundamental or core nature of mathematics, its compulsory acquisition, requires high quality mathematics learning experiences. Moreover it is highly desirable that the emergence of new technology positively influences learning experiences in mathematics.…

Galligan, Linda; Hobohm, Carola; Loch, Birgit – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012
Teaching and learning of mathematics is challenging when lecturer and students are separated geographically. While student engagement and interaction with the course, with other students and with the lecturer is vital to mathematics learning, it is difficult to facilitate this electronically, because of the nature of mathematics. With tablet…

Tsivitanidou, Olia; Zacharia, Zacharias C.; Hovardas, Tasos; Nicolaou, Aphrodite – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012
In this study we introduced a peer feedback tool to secondary school students while aiming at investigating whether this tool leads to a feedback dialogue when using a computer supported inquiry learning environment in science. Moreover, we aimed at examining what type of feedback students ask for and receive and whether the students use the…

Fox, William – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012
The purpose of our modeling effort is to predict future outcomes. We assume the data collected are both accurate and relatively precise. For our oscillating data, we examined several mathematical modeling forms for predictions. We also examined both ignoring the oscillations as an important feature and including the oscillations as an important…

Hu, Xiangen; Craig, Scotty D.; Bargagliotti, Anna E.; Graesser, Arthur C.; Okwumabua, Theresa; Anderson, Celia; Cheney, Kyle R.; Sterbinsky, Allan – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012
This study investigated the effectiveness of the Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces (ALEKS) system as a method of strategic intervention in after-school settings to improve the mathematical skills of struggling 6th grade students. Students were randomly assigned to after-school classrooms in which they either worked with ALEKS to improve…

Sherrell, Linda; Malasri, Kriangsiri; Mills, David; Thomas, Allen; Greer, James – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012
From 2004-2007, the University of Memphis carried out the NSF-funded Tri-P-LETS (Three P Learning Environment for Teachers and Students) project to improve local high-school computer science curricula. The project reached a total of 58 classrooms in eleven high schools emphasizing problem solving skills, programming concepts as opposed to syntax,…

Bouck, Emily C. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012
Mathematics is a critical content area and assistive technology can benefit students with high incidence disabilities in accessing and achieving in this domain. Yet, the field lacks awareness of how often teachers use assistive technology in mathematics and what types of technology they are using. This study sought to understand teachers' self…

Florida, Jennifer – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012
The study deals with the development of an analogy-integrated e-learning module on Cellular Respiration, which is intended to facilitate conceptual understanding of students with different brain hemisphere dominance and learning styles. The module includes eight analogies originally conceptualized following the specific steps used to prepare…

Fluck, Andrew; Ranmuthugala, Dev; Chin, Chris; Penesis, Irene – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012
Integral calculus is generally regarded as a fundamental but advanced aspect of mathematics, and it is not generally studied until students are aged about fifteen or older. Understanding the transformative potential of information and communication technology, this project undertook an investigation in four Australian schools to train students…

Herron, Sherry; Gopal, Tamilselvi – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012
We conducted a series of summer workshops on bioinformatics to increase educators' knowledge of this new field of inquiry with the assumption that their knowledge will, in turn, impact student achievement. The workshops incorporated experiential learning and self-reflection (Loucks-Horsley et al. 1998). Educators demonstrated significant increases…

Grincewicz, Amy; Zydney, Janet; Jones, Paul; Hasselbring, Ted – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2011
In developing "Math Pursuits," we designed a learning environment that helps learners connect mathematics to the world around them. The ultimate goal of this research was to design and assess a learning environment that incorporates distributed scaffolding, which enabled both human and technological supports. Pilot testing was conducted over 3…

Siko, Jason; Barbour, Michael; Toker, Sacip – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2011
To date, research involving homemade PowerPoint games as an instructional tool has not shown statistically significant gains in student performance. This paper examines the results of a study comparing the performance of students in a high school chemistry course who created homemade PowerPoint games as a test review with the students who used a…
