Good, Jonathon; Keenan, Sarah; Mishra, Punya – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016
The popular press is rife with examples of how students in the United States and around the globe are learning to program, make, and tinker. The Hour of Code, maker-education, and similar efforts are advocating that more students be exposed to principles found within computer science. We propose an expansion beyond simply teaching computational…

Foster, Aroutis; Shah, Mamta – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016
This study used the Dynamic Systems Model of Role Identity (DSMRI) to examine the extent to which a game, Land Science, afforded identity change opportunities as exploration of science identities, science content knowledge, science confidence, action possibilities, and interest/valuing in an intentional manner. Analysis of the game and existing…

Unal, Aslihan; Unal, Zafer – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016
The CCSS is a set of standards released by the National Governors Association in 2010 and was adopted by 43 states (Common Core, 2015). The standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade. They are designed to be academically rigorous, while attainable for students and practical for teachers to teach.…

Haake, Magnus; Husain, Layla; Gulz, Agneta – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
There is substantial evidence that preschooler's performance in early math is highly correlated to math performance throughout school as well as academic skills in general. One way to help children attain early math skills is by using targeted educational software and the paper discusses potential gains of using such software to support early math…

Gadanidis, George – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
The history of mathematics educational reform is replete with innovations taken up enthusiastically by early adopters without significant transfer to other classrooms. This paper explores the coupling of coding and mathematics education to create the possibility that coding may serve as a Trojan Horse for mathematics education reform. That is,…

Nikolos, Dimitris; Komis, Vassilis – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
The Scratch programming language is an introductory programming language for students. It is also a visual concurrent programming language, where multiple threads are executed simultaneously. Synchronization in concurrent languages is a complex task for novices to understand. Our research is focused on strategies and methods applied by novice…

Lee, Soon Chun; Irving, Karen; Pape, Stephen; Owens, Douglas – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
Increased teacher awareness of student thinking and understanding enables teachers to better support students' learning by allowing for increased formative feedback that clarifies students' understanding and supports their construction of knowledge. However, many science teachers do not possess skills related to assessing student learning and…

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…
