Azam, Saiqa – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2016
This paper describes an action research study aimed at challenging and changing the epistemological views of pre-service science teachers (PSTs) during a core course on educational psychology in a teacher education programme. The researcher, as an instructor, used this course to provide learning opportunities for PSTs to change their existing…

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…

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…

Yee, Ng Kin; Lam, Toh Tin – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2008
This paper reports on students' errors in performing integration of rational functions, a topic of calculus in the pre-university mathematics classrooms. Generally the errors could be classified as those due to the students' weak algebraic concepts and their lack of understanding of the concept of integration. With the students' inability to link…
