Fong, Ng Swee – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2006
This paper describes an activity which attempts to change the discourse of a mathematics classroom with the specific intent to help children who may have difficulties with mathematics and ways of communicating. Ten 8-year old children in the Learning Support Programme were engaged in an open-ended geometric task. In this paper a brief description…

Sapianchai, Nida – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1979
This paper was presented at the Southeast Asian Workshop on new trends in the selection of content for chemistry curricula. The chemistry curriculum project developed by the Institute for the Promotion of Teaching Science and Technology (IPST) of Thailand was discussed. (HM)

Tobin, Kenneth; Capie, William – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1984
To obtain reliable and valid measures of cognitive development in group settings, the Test of Logical Thinking, a paper-and pencil test of formal reasoning ability, was developed. It was administered to high school stuents, and alternate forms were then devised. Applications are discussed. (MNS)

Wilson, Audrey; Wilson, Michael – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1984
A group test of formal thinking was administered to all grade 11 entrants in National High Schools in Papua New Guinea, and readministered two years later. Only 8 percent operated formally on the initial test; two years later, 18 percent were operating formally and 37 percent were at a transition stage. (MNS)

Adey, Philip S. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1982
Reviews major purposes and conclusions, and criticisms of cross cultural Piagetian studies conducted during the last two decades. The particular interest of science educators in the work is discussed in light of the availability of new instruments for assessing levels of cognitive development and for analyzing science curricula. (Author/JN)

Swinson, Kevan – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1992
Reviews research of writing activities that help identify student misconceptions and serve as a vehicle for knowledge construction. (29 references) (MDH)

Hill, Douglas M.; And Others – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1985
Reports the results of a cross-cultural study of the development of five spatial competencies in samples of Thai and Australian children. The pattern of development was found to be similar for seven- and eight-year-olds but different for four- and five-year-olds. (Author/JN)

Salyachivin, Somboon; And Others – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1985
The interview-about-instances technique was used to investigate the conceptual frameworks that 17 Form Four Southeast Asian students held about forces acting on an object at rest or in motion. Results show a number of alternate frameworks which are similar to those found in research conducted in western countries. (Author/JN)

Peterson, Archibald – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1981
Summarizes a pilot project which investigated how elementary school children in Southeast Asia learn science and mathematics concepts at different cognitive levels using the modified clinical method and group task approach. Includes the Concept Learning Project's basis, goals, phases, methodology, activities, and a summary of the findings. (DS)

Acuna, Jasmin Espiitu – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1982
Summarizes four stages in the development of causality obtained from interviews with Filipino children (N=1,228), reporting how they responded to questions and effect of grade/age levels on their characteristic responses. Includes a fifth stage, a logical analysis of what would be required of an adolescent trying to understand the sciences.…

Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1979
Presents short descriptions of some research projects in science and mathematics education which have been conducted in the following countries in Southeast Asia: Malaysia, Philippines, and Thailand. (HM)

Cheung, Y. L. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1980
Synthesized are a number of learning theories (those of Piaget, Bruner, Gagne, Dienes and Skemp) to form one composite teaching-learning model. This model is then applied to mathematics teaching. An example is provided to illustrate how the model may be used to elaborate a teaching-learning scheme for solving quadratic equations. (Author/DS)

Seng, Chin Pin – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1980
Identified are common features of the present implementation of new school physics teaching in Southeast Asia. Implementation aids, methods, and teacher comprehension, student cognitive levels, learning styles, and a more functional physics curriculum are discussed. (DS)
Descriptors: Cognitive Development, Cognitive Style, Curriculum Development, Educational Trends
Hart, Kathleen – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1979
Discusses the need for mathematics teaching to be matched to children's understanding rather than to the demands of mathematics. Illustrations are given from the results of testing British children by the Concepts in Secondary Mathematics and Science (CSMS) Project, Chelsea College, University of London. (HM)
