Gek, Chua Kwee – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
What do pre-service teachers learn from their observation stint during school experience attachment? This paper will present insights into the cognitive contents of the pre-service teachers' reflection log. Preliminary analyses revealed that different cultures and pedagogical practices were observed to be in operation in different school contexts.…

Gregson, Robyn; Aubusson, Peter – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
In recent times there has been much debate about the literacy levels of students in our schools. Federal and State Governments have provided extensive resources to improve the literacy standards of our tertiary, primary and secondary students. As part of this emphasis on literacy the role that writing plays in student learning has been…

Ali, Maznah; Ismail, Zurida – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
This article describes the outcome of an exercise carried out with one hundred undergraduate student teachers (preservice teachers) enrolled in a Biology Teaching Methods course, a third year course in a four-year Teacher Education Programme. The students, working in groups of three to four, were assigned to construct a concept map showing their…

Kelly, Dennis; Soyibo, Kola – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
This study was designed to find out if students taught food and nutrition concepts using the lecture method and practical work would perform significantly better than their counterparts taught with the lecture and teacher demonstrations and the lecture method only. The sample comprised 114 Jamaican 10th-graders (56 boys, 58 girls) selected from…

Tan, Kim Chwee Daniel; Taber, Keith S. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
Previous research has shown that students' existing conceptions are critical to subsequent learning because there is interaction between the new knowledge that the students encounter and their existing knowledge from previous lessons. Taber (1999a) found A-level students in the UK had difficulty in understanding the principles determining the…

Tek, Ong Eng; Ruthven, Kenneth – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
This article reports the relative effect of smart and mainstream schooling on students' acquisition of science process skills which was measured using TIPS-II(M)--the Malay version of Burns, Okey, and Wise's (1985) Test of Integrated Process Skills II. Using students' primary-school science achievement results in the Standardized National…

Yeo, Kai Kow Joseph; Goh, See Khai Eric; Koh, Eric Zhen Feng – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
Teachers tend to design worksheets to assist their students to develop their spatial skills. Many secondary schools students may not have sufficient concrete experiences to tackle abstract reasoning in geometrical concepts competently. In addition, students who are non-visual and spatial learners may have difficulties in learning geometrical…

Hong, Kian-Sam; Cheng, Julia Lee Ai; Liau, Tet-Loke – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
The benefits of an e-learning system will not be maximised if learners do not use the system. This study was conducted with 26 postgraduate students at a faculty in Universiti Malaysia Sarawak taking an on-campus course supplemented with an e-learning system. The purpose of the study was to determine which factors were related to intention to use…

Clayton-Johnson, Miriam; Soyibo, Kola – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
This study was designed to ascertain if (a) the level of biology performance of the selected 393 Jamaican 11th-graders (188 boys, 205 girls)--who constituted the main study's sample--was satisfactory or not; (b) there were statistically significant differences in their performance linked to their gender, attitudes towards biology, learning styles,…

Dhindsa, Harkirat S. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
The candle burning experiment is usually conducted in lower secondary classes to prove the (about) 20% oxygen in air. The aim of this paper is to show that teachers misinterpret the results of the experiment to satisfy the objectives of teaching this experiment. However, when the results of this experiment are interpreted correctly, the objectives…

Peer, Jarina; Atputhasamy, Lourdusamy – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
The science epistemological beliefs of students have been found to play an important role in determining their learning orientations towards science. Conley, Pintrich, Vekiri, & Harrison (2004) developed a measure to examine the epistemology beliefs of students about science. The measure encompasses four dimensions about scientific knowledge:…

Subramaniam, Selva Ranee – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
Questioning skills are significant pedagogical strategies in science teaching and learning. This study explored the questioning skills of a trainee teacher during a 10-week practicum period. The trainee teacher was audio-taped and evaluated in the form of an action research methodology was done in the first two weeks. The quantitative data…

Sulaiman, Tajularipin; Noordin, Nooreen – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
The purpose of this research was to examine the extent to which teachers use question levels in the teaching of investigation skills. Six question levels based on Bloom's Taxonomy (1956) were examined in this study which included knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, evaluation and affective as well (Ghazali Mustapha, 1998).…

Yeo, Kai Kow Joseph – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2004
This study explores the problem-solving frameworks of twenty prospective secondary mathematics teachers. Twenty prospective secondary mathematics teachers were asked to complete in writing the statement "When I am given a mathematics problem to solve, this is what I do...." Prospective secondary mathematics teachers were found to rely on…
