Glassmeyer, David; Smith, Andrew; Gardner, Kimberly – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
Logarithms are notorious for being a difficult concept to understand and teach. Research suggests that learners can be supported in understanding logarithms by making connections between mathematics and science concepts such as pH. This study investigated how an integrated chemistry and mathematics lesson impacted 29 teachers' understanding of the…

Dolores Flores, Crisólogo; Rivera López, Martha Iris; Moore-Russo, Deborah – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
Slope is a fundamental mathematics concept in middle and high school that transcends to the university level. An understanding of slope is needed at the university level since slope plays an important role in understanding problems involving variation and change. In this study Mexican curricula documents were examined to determine which…

Keazer, Lindsay; Jung, Hyunyi – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
Problem solving has long been a priority in mathematics education, and the first Common Core mathematical practice (SMP1) focuses on this priority through the language of "Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them." We present findings from a survey about how prospective elementary teachers' (PTs) make sense of potential…

Navy, Shannon L.; Kaya, Fatma – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
Problem-based learning (PBL) and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) are two acronyms widely visible in education literature today. However, few studies have explored these in connection with one another, specifically with regard to teacher preparation. This study investigated how 47 prospective elementary teachers developed…

Hong, Dae S.; Runnalls, Cristina – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
The purpose of this work was to explore how elementary preservice teachers responded to area conservation tasks. We administered written pre-assessments, followed by semi-structured interviews with 23 preservice teachers, asking them to respond to and reason with area conservation tasks. Findings highlighted several interesting preservice…

Hart, Lynn C.; Auslander, Susan S.; Venuto, Nicole; Jacobs, Tiffany; Carothers, Jody; Chestnutt, Cliff – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
The purpose of this study was to review the existing research on affect (beliefs, attitudes, and emotions) of elementary prospective teachers (EPTs) in university mathematics content courses. We use as our time period from publication in the United States of the Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for Schools Mathematics through 2016. A search of…

Kim, Eunjeong; Oliver, J. Steve; Kim, Young Ae – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
The goal of this article is to inform professional understanding regarding preservice science teachers' knowledge of engineering and the engineering design process. Originating as a conceptual study of the appropriateness of "knowledge as design" as a framework for conducting science teacher education to support learning related to…

Olson, Amy M.; Stoehr, Kathleen Jablon – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
This paper presents qualitative and quantitative approaches to exploring teachers' experiences of mathematics anxiety (for learning and doing mathematics) and mathematics teaching anxiety (for instructing others in mathematics), the relationship between these types of anxiety and test/evaluation anxiety, and the impacts of anxiety on experiences…

Cormas, Peter C.; Middlemiss, Samantha – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Mathematics and science have similar learning processes (SLPs) and it has been proposed that courses focused on these and other similarities promote transfer across disciplines. However, it is not known how the use of these processes in lessons taught to children change throughout a preservice teacher education course or which are most likely to…

Nesmith, Suzanne M.; Cooper, Sandi – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Young children are capable of engaging in STEM investigations when they are guided by skilled and knowledgeable teachers. However, many elementary teachers may lack sufficient STEM content knowledge and report feeling unprepared to teach STEM content. Two university faculty members in mathematics and science education, worked to cultivate and…

Carpenter, Stacey L.; Iveland, Ashley; Moon, Sungmin; Hansen, Alexandria K.; Harlow, Danielle B.; Bianchini, Julie A. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
We investigated beginning secondary science teachers' understandings of the science and engineering practice of developing and using models. Our study was situated in a scholarship program that served two groups: undergraduate STEM majors interested in teaching, or potential teachers, and graduate students enrolled in a teacher education program…

Adu-Gyamfi, Kwaku; Bossé, Michael J.; Lynch-Davis, Kathleen – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Previous research has investigated the representational translation practices of high school students, high school teachers, and college preservice teachers in various mathematical contexts including linear functions. Findings from qualitative research has frequently led to new notions about participant work and understanding. Many quantitative…

Sparks, David M.; Pole, Kathryn – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Teachers involved in a Master's level course in diversity participated in virtual, synchronous, anonymized discussions around issues of ethnic and racial diversity, gender, and stereotypes that could impact their students' participation in fields related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Guided by theoretical frameworks…

Jung, Hyunyi; Stehr, Eryn M.; He, Jia – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Engaging with mathematical modeling can support learners to collaboratively explore mathematics in integrated ways as well as generate mathematical ideas and representations that may be useful in everyday life. Although several studies provide diverse insights into teaching and learning mathematical modeling, research has yet to be conducted on…

Fisher, Molly H.; Thomas, Jonathan; Jong, Cindy; Schack, Edna O.; Dueber, David – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
This paper examines the implementation of an instructional module on preservice elementary teachers' professional noticing of children's mathematical thinking. The module focuses on professional noticing skills through the content focus of early algebraic reasoning and uses complex video vignettes from whole class instruction in authentic…
