Elevator Speech: Students' Discussions of Forces and Acceleration by Means of a Scale in an Elevator

Johansen, Astrid; Bungum, Berit – LUMAT: International Journal on Math, Science and Technology Education, 2022

Students' challenges in learning mechanics are well documented from test situations, and group discussions are considered a fruitful way to meet these challenges. In this paper, we present a study from an authentic teaching setting where upper secondary students in groups solve the task of calculating the acceleration of an elevator by means of a…

Kangaslampi, Riikka; Asikainen, Henna; Virtanen, Viivi – LUMAT: International Journal on Math, Science and Technology Education, 2022

This study aims at better understanding of the use of self-assessment to support high-achieving students in first-year university mathematics. The students, who had not previously self-assessed their skills and knowledge in mathematics, were given two self-assessment exercises during a calculus course: they assessed their prior knowledge and…

Nyirahabimana, Pascasie; Minani, Evariste; Nduwingoma, Mathias; Kemeza, Imelda – LUMAT: International Journal on Math, Science and Technology Education, 2022

A subject of physics includes various complex and sophisticated concepts that pose a challenge for both instructors to teach and students to grasp the clarity in the subject. Many researchers have discussed this challenge toward adopting an appropriate approach to teach physics in the institution. Therefore, the study reviews the research articles…

Öztürk, Tugba; Güven, Bülent – LUMAT: International Journal on Math, Science and Technology Education, 2022

Proof is foundational to mathematics, and constructing proofs and establishing their validity are both important mathematical studies. Determining the validity of a proof is a part of the process of proof evaluation. Proof evaluation contributes to students' ability to construct and revise their own proofs. The purpose of this study was to…

Lahdenperä, Juulia; Jussila, Jari; Järvenpää, Anne-Mari; Postareff, Liisa – LUMAT: International Journal on Math, Science and Technology Education, 2022

Many studies emphasise the need for supporting higher education students to develop general competences. In this study, we report on the first cycle of a designbased research project conducted in the Design Factory context. The aim of the project is to understand how general competences can be integrated into course modules and within…

Ibrahim, Mohammed; Seker, Hasan – LUMAT: International Journal on Math, Science and Technology Education, 2022

The purpose of this study is to examine the attitudes of middle school 7th and 8th grade students towards STEM education in Turkey and Ghana. The research was conducted to a total of 974 grade 7 & 8 middle school students (480 from Turkey-Mugla Province and 494 from Ghana-Accra Province) during the spring semester of 2018-2019 academic year. A…

Ladachart, Luecha; Khamlarsai, Sirinapa; Phothong, Wilawan – LUMAT: International Journal on Math, Science and Technology Education, 2022

Attention is increasingly being paid to integrated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education as a way to increase the workforce for STEM-related careers as well as to promote STEM literacy among citizens. This means that all students, including those who are educationally disadvantaged, are expected to not only acquire…

Metsämuuronen, Jari; Ukkola, Annette – LUMAT: International Journal on Math, Science and Technology Education, 2022

A national-level dataset (n = 7770) at grade 1 of primary school is re-analyzed to study preconditions in proficiency in mathematical concepts, operations and mathematical abstractions and thinking. The focus is on those pupils whose preconditions are so low that they are below the first measurable level of proficiency in the common framework with…

Oikkonen, Juha; Hannula, Jani – LUMAT: International Journal on Math, Science and Technology Education, 2022

A rigorous and axiomatic-deductive approach is emphasized in teaching mathematics at university-level. Therefore, the secondary-tertiary transition includes a major change in mathematical thinking. One viewpoint to examine such elements of mathematical thinking is David Tall's framework of the three worlds of mathematics. Tall's framework…

Kaitera, Susanna; Harmoinen, Sari – LUMAT: International Journal on Math, Science and Technology Education, 2022

Developing students' skills in solving mathematical problems and supporting creative mathematical thinking have been important topics of Finnish National Core Curricula 2004 and 2014. To foster these skills, students should be provided with rich, meaningful problem-solving tasks already in primary school. Teachers have a crucial role in equipping…

Wettergren, Satta – LUMAT: International Journal on Math, Science and Technology Education, 2022

Algebraic thinking is an important part of mathematical thinking, and researchers agree that it is beneficial to develop algebraic thinking from an early age. However, there are few examples of what can be taken as indicators of young students' algebraic thinking. The results contribute to filling that gap by analyzing and exemplifying young…

Rinneheimo, Kirsi-Maria; Suhonen, Sami – LUMAT: International Journal on Math, Science and Technology Education, 2022

The ability to apply mathematical concepts and procedures in relevant contexts in engineering subjects sets the fundamental basis for the mathematics competencies in engineering education. Among the plethora of digital techniques and tools arises a question: Do the students gain a deep and conceptual enough understanding of mathematics that they…
