Serow, Penelope; Sullivan, Terence; Taylor, Neil – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2017
Teacher-made teaching and learning resources are an effective way to facilitate relevant and appropriate curriculum content, values and attitudes for students. This is particularly significant when the context is rather unique, as was the case in the remote developing Pacific Island Country of Nauru. Such resources can be deployed in accompaniment…

Pitiporntapin, Sasithep; Sadler, Troy D. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2015
This study aims to examine the perceptions and practices of socioscientific issue- (SSI) based teaching of 37 pre-service science teachers (PSTs) studying for a master's degree in science education as well as the factors affecting their SSI-based teaching during their field experience in the first semester of the academic year 2014. Data were…

Montebon, Darryl Roy T. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2015
The content knowledge of teachers matters in the classroom. It influences their ability to deliver lessons, select activities for their students and assess students' learning. This study investigates the experiences of biology pre-service teachers who were required to teach physics and earth science concepts during their pre-service teaching. Such…

Hudson, Peter – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2014
Preservice teachers articulate the need for more teaching experiences for developing their practices, however, extending beyond existing school arrangements may present difficulties. Thus, it is important to understand preservice teachers' development of pedagogical knowledge practices when in the university setting. This mixed-method study…

Hudson, Peter; Matthews, Kelly – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2012
Women are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) areas in university settings; however this may be the result of attitude rather than aptitude. There is widespread agreement that quantitative problem-solving is essential for graduate competence and preparedness in science and other STEM subjects. The research…

Luneta, Kakoma; Makonye, Judah P. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2011
This study explores the nature of undergraduate students' errors and misconceptions in particle mechanics. This paper provides in-depth descriptions of the errors presented by students and accounts for them in terms of students' procedural or conceptual knowledge. Specifically, this study analyses students' written responses to questions on…

Hudson, Peter – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2010
Reviews into teacher education emphasise the need for preservice teachers to have more school-based experiences. In this study, a school- based experience was organised within a nine-week science curriculum university unit that allowed preservice teachers' repeated experiences in teaching primary science. This research uses a survey, questionnaire…

Widjaja, Wanty; Dolk, Maarten; Fauzan, Ahmad – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2010
This paper discusses results from a design research in line with Realistic Mathematics Education (RME). Daily cycles of design, classroom experiments, and retrospective analysis are enacted in five days of working about division by fractions. Data consists of episodes of video classroom discussions, and samples of students' work. The focus of…

Bonello, Charles; Scaife, Jon – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2009
Demonstrations are a core part of science teaching. In 1980 a three-part assessment method using demonstrating was proposed. Known as DOE this consisted of demonstration, observation and explanation. DOE quickly evolved into POE: predict, observe, explain. In the light of experiences with POE and insights from constructivist theory we set out in…

Yong, Koay Chen; Saleh, Fatimah – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2008
This study explores the mathematical problem-solving process of trainee teachers in a teachers' training institute. This research adopts a constructivist perspective that views learning mathematics as a process of constructing meaningful representation and knowledge as being constructed by the individual. The research methodology employs the case…

Widjaja, Wanty; Stacey, Kaye; Steinle, Vicki – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2008
Extensive studies have documented various difficulties with, and misconceptions about, decimal numeration across different levels of education. This paper reports on pre-service teachers' misconceptions about the density of decimals. Written test data from 140 Indonesian pre-service teachers, observation of group and classroom discussions provided…

Salih, Maria – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2008
This paper explored and described the analogical reasoning occurring in the minds of different science achievement groups for the concept of translation in protein synthesis. "What is the process of self-generated analogical reasoning?", "What types of matching was involved?" and "What are the consequences of the matching…
