Alyami, Hanan – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
Empirical studies of angle, angle measure, and radian angle measure have primarily focused on documenting students' and teachers' conceptions. Representations of angle measure have the potential to inform and build on these conceptions. To gain insight into the concept of radian angle measure from a curricular perspective, I investigated 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…

Koskey, Kristin L. K.; Makki, Nidaa; Ahmed, Wondimu; Garafolo, Nicholas G.; Visco, Donald P., Jr. – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
Integrating engineering into the K-12 science curriculum continues to be a focus in national reform efforts in science education. Although there is an increasing interest in research in and practice of integrating engineering in K-12 science education, to date only a few studies have focused on the development of an assessment tool to measure…

Ray, Amy – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
While research in mathematics education has shown that mathematics assessments are highly consequential, traditional assessments often lag behind advancements in instructional methods. One such advancement is the promotion of mathematical habits of mind such as students' abilities to critique others' reasoning. This study explored the use of…

Asempapa, Reuben S. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
This article describes the development, initial validation, and psychometric evaluation of the mathematical modeling attitude scale (MMAS). Specifically, both qualitative and quantitative techniques were used to generate relevant items. The MMAS assesses K-12 teachers' attitude toward mathematical modeling and examines their experiences with…

Du, Wenbin; Liu, Denghui; Johnson, Carla C.; Sondergeld, Toni A.; Bolshakova, Virginia L. J.; Moore, Tamara J. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
This study of a state-funded, 3-year implementation of an integrated STEM professional development (PD) program for teachers from two middle schools in the midwestern U.S. examined if participants in the PD were enabled to transform their practice and perceptions of STEM. An integrated STEM approach includes a focus on the STEM disciplines, along…

Baliram, Nalline; Ellis, Arthur K. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of metacognitive strategies and content-specific feedback on student achievement in high school mathematics. Participants consisted of a convenience sample of students in honors geometry. An analysis of variance with repeated measures was employed to address the research questions. For both the…

Bicer, Ali; Capraro, R. M. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
The purpose of this study is to compare students' mathematics achievement growth rate in Texas science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (T-STEM) academies to students' mathematics achievement growth rate in traditional public high schools. Forty-six schools, 23 of which were T-STEM academies and 23 of which were matched non-STEM schools,…

Siverling, Emilie A.; Suazo-Flores, Elizabeth; Mathis, Corey A.; Moore, Tamara J. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Engineering design-based STEM integration is one potential model to help students integrate content and practices from all of the STEM disciplines. In this study, we explored the intersection of two aspects of pre-college STEM education: the integration of the STEM disciplines, and the NGSS practice of engaging in argument from evidence within…

Killough, Joy K.; Stuessy, Carol L. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Can participation in a 4-day workshop change science teachers' beliefs about reformed science teaching? We observe a significant difference between pre- and post-workshop surveys and explore an unexpected relationship involving teaching experience. Results of this exploratory study indicate a significant correlation between high school science…

Stohlmann, Micah – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Of the four subjects in an integrated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) approach, mathematics has not received enough focus. This could be in part because mathematics teachers may be apprehensive or unsure about how to implement integrated STEM education in their classrooms. There are benefits to integrated STEM in a…

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…
