Witherspoon, Taajah Felder – School Science and Mathematics, 2019

The goal of this research was to examine fifth graders' understanding of fractions on the number line. This case-study design focused on the various ways that students represented fractions on number lines. Students responded to task-based interview questions by identifying fractions as a number on the number line as well as equivalency and…

Baran, Evrim; Canbazoglu Bilici, Sedef; Mesutoglu, Canan; Ocak, Ceren – School Science and Mathematics, 2019

There is an increasing awareness of out-of-school program value in enhancing student interest and understanding of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). This study examined the impact of an out-of-school STEM education program on student attitudes toward STEM disciplines and STEM careers. A STEM education program implemented at…

Edmondson, Elizabeth; Choudhry, Fahima – School Science and Mathematics, 2018

This study investigates whether elementary science teachers participating in a four-week professional development workshop develop new understandings about classroom discourse and whether they are able to implement strategies toward teaching science as student-to-student discourse. Perspectives and the extent of teacher use of discourse strategies…

Kotsopoulos, Donna; Makosz, Samantha; Zambrzycka, Joanna; Cordy, Michelle – School Science and Mathematics, 2018

International standardized tests are showing an underperformance of students in geometry and spatial ability relative to other content domains. In this research, we examined the relationship between a teacher's judgment of third- and fourth-grade students' geometry and spatial ability (i.e., grades), three spatial ability tasks (Water-Level-Task,…

Amador, Julie M. – School Science and Mathematics, 2016

Teachers' abilities to design mathematics lessons are related to their capability to mobilize resources to meeting intended learning goals based on their noticing. In this process, knowing how teachers consider Students' thinking is important for understanding how they are making decisions to promote student learning. While teaching, what teachers…

Selcen Guzey, S.; Moore, Tamara J.; Morse, Gillian – School Science and Mathematics, 2016

Current reform efforts in science education around the world call on teachers to use integrated approaches to teach science. As a part of such reform efforts in the United States, engineering practices and engineering design have been identified in K-12 science education standards. However, there is relatively little is known about effective ways…

Jackson, Christa; Wilhelm, Jennifer Anne; Lamar, Mary; Cole, Merryn – School Science and Mathematics, 2015

This study investigated sixth-grade middle-level students' geometric spatial development by gender and race within and between control and experimental groups at two middle schools as they participated in an Earth/Space unit. The control group utilized a regular Earth/Space curriculum and the experimental group used a National Aeronautics and…

Lofgran, Brandi B.; Smith, Leigh K.; Whiting, Erin F. – School Science and Mathematics, 2015

This study examined the science self-efficacy beliefs of students at the transition from elementary school (Grade 6) to middle school (Grade 7) and the transition from middle school (Grade 8) to high school (Grade 9). The purpose was to determine whether students' perceived competence is impacted at these important school transitions and if the…

Bostic, Jonathan David; Sondergeld, Toni A. – School Science and Mathematics, 2015

This article describes the development of a problem-solving instrument intended for classroom use that addresses the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. In this study, 137 students completed the assessment, and their responses were analyzed. Evidence for validity was collected and examined using the current standards for educational and…

Martin, Christie Lynn – School Science and Mathematics, 2015

In this study, I examine how using a writers' workshop model in mathematics creates a space for students to write about their mathematical thinking and problem solving and how their writing impacts instruction. This case study of one classroom with one teacher spanned 6 weeks and included 18 implementations of an adapted version of the Writers'…

Roseno, Ashley T.; Carraway-Stage, Virginia G.; Hoerdeman, Callan; Díaz, Sebastián R.; Geist, Eugene; Duffrin, Melani W. – School Science and Mathematics, 2015

This article addresses the current state of the mathematics education system in the United States and provides a possible solution to the contributing issues. As a result of lower performance in primary mathematics, American students are not acquiring the necessary quantitative literacy skills to become successful adults. This study analyzed the…

Linder, Sandra M.; Smart, Julie B.; Cribbs, Jennifer – School Science and Mathematics, 2015

This paper presents the results of a multi-method study examining elementary students with high self-reported levels of mathematics motivation. Second- through fifth-grade students at a Title One school in the southeastern United States completed the Elementary Mathematics Motivation Instrument (EMMI), which examines levels of mathematics…

Guzey, S. Selcen; Harwell, Michael; Moore, Tamara – School Science and Mathematics, 2014

There is a need for more students to be interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers to advance U.S. competitiveness and economic growth. A consensus exists that improving STEM education is necessary for motivating more students to pursue STEM careers. In this study, a survey to measure student (grades 4-6)…

Carrier, Jim – School Science and Mathematics, 2014

For many students, developing mathematical reasoning can prove to be challenging. Such difficulty may be explained by a deficit in the core understanding of many arithmetical concepts taught in early school years. Multiplicative reasoning is one such concept that produces an essential foundation upon which higher-level mathematical thinking skills…
