Hiong, Sim Joong; Daniel, Esther Gnanamalar Sarojini – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2015
Perceiving (such as seeing) and representing (such as drawing and talking about what one perceives) is fundamental to chemical education. The purpose of this study was to gain further insights and understanding into selected students' representational competence in chemistry through student-generated representations (SGR). In the mixed model…

Nasution, Andrea Arifsyah; Lukito, Agung – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2015
In teaching proportion, the teachers usually give the students a formal formula, such as cross-multiplication, without providing them the meaning of proportionality. Thus, the students just apply it in order to solve proportional problems. However, it does not connote that they understand what proportionality means. In this paper, the authors…

Nam, Pham Sy; Stephens, Max – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2014
"Limit" is a difficult mathematical concept, even for good students. It is also a key foundational idea for the study of advanced mathematics. It holds a central position as a foundation of the theory of approximation, of continuity, and of differential and integral calculus. However, the difficulty for teachers is how to organise…

Sim, Joong Hiong; Daniel, Esther Gnanamalar Sarojini – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2014
Developing representational competence early in chemistry education is important. However, research to uncover students' difficulties with representational competence of basic chemical concepts in the early years of their chemistry course is scarce. The purpose of this study was to investigate and identify these difficulties. A total of 384…

Chow, Tuck-Choy F.; Treagust, David F. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2013
The study involved evaluating the efficacy of a conceptual change instructional programme involving cognitive conflict in (1) facilitating form 2 (grade 8) students' understanding of algebra concepts, and (2) assessing changes in students' attitudes towards learning mathematics, in a mixed quantitative-qualitative research design. The…

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…

Treagust, David F.; Duit, Reinders – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2009
Conceptual change views of teaching and learning processes in science, and also in various other content domains, have played a significant role in research on teaching and learning as well as in instructional design since the late 1970s. Conceptual change can be interpreted from different individual perspectives or from multiple perspectives. In…

Dahsah, Chanyah; Coll, Richard K.; Sung-ong, Sunan; Yutakom, Naruemon; Sanguanruang, Sudjit – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2008
The international literature suggests students frequently resort to the use of formulae when solving stoichiometry problems without understanding the concepts. In prior work we identified Thai student alternative conceptions and ability to solve numerical problem for stoichiometry. The results indicate that many Thai students also hold alternative…

Thoe, Ng Khar – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2007
Instructional strategies determine the approaches an educator may take to achieve learning objectives. Research has shown that sets of strategies or instructional models anchored on social constructivist learning theories were found to be effective in enhancing active participation. It is particularly influential and meaningful in many areas of…

Idros, Sharifah Norhaidah Syed – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2004
Science is at heart a rational activity. Reasoning, being an important component of critical thinking has been successfully taught using Socratic methods. As an approach, the instructor or designer of instruction models an inquiring and probing mind focusing on providing questions and not answers. The main aim has been to allow learners to…

Ferrer, Lourdes M. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2004
This study has two parallel research agenda: (1) the development of social skills and pedagogical content knowledge in teacher candidates as they work collaboratively in pairs, and (2) the development of conceptual understanding and social skills in elementary school students who are taught by teacher candidates with cooperative learning…

Collis, Kevin F. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1981
Describes three procedures (with sample items) developed to measure conceptual growth in children: (1) a short answer type achievement paper test; (2) stimulus cards; and (3) card sorting task. Tests were designed to enable investigators to observe, record, and quantify student's thinking without disrupting or distorting it. (DS)

Sia, Archibald Peterson C. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1980
Describes a study designed to compare the gradual development of children's understanding of shadows with Piaget's stages, categorize pupil responses in the shadow tasks, identify typical pupil responses in each category, and enumerate curriculum implications from the investigation. (GS)

Yodintra, Smai – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1980
Discussed are the problems of teaching and learning fractions in the upper primary and lower secondary schools. Recommendations for teaching fractions are made and defects in various methods of fraction instruction are identified. It is suggested that fractions not be taught in upper primary and lower secondary schools. (Author/DS)
