Sun, Li – School Science and Mathematics, 2020

Recent research on teachers' use of student mathematical thinking (SMT) and recommendations for effective mathematics instruction claim that how teachers respond to SMT has great impact on student mathematical learning in the classroom. This study examined some Chinese mathematics teachers' responses to student in-the-moment mathematical thinking…

Kelly, Stephanie; Liu, Liping; Denton, Zachary; Lee, Clinton; Croucher, Stephen – School Science and Mathematics, 2018

The present investigation examined instructor immediacy behaviors, students' perceptions of those behaviors, and student math anxiety in Chinese classrooms. Consistent with the American college classroom, a simple causal chain was anticipated in which instructor immediacy behaviors positively induced a psychological response to immediacy, which…

Zhang, Danhui; Orrill, Chandra; Campbell, Todd – School Science and Mathematics, 2015

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether mixture Rasch models followed by qualitative item-by-item analysis of selected Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) mathematics and science items offered insight into knowledge students invoke in mathematics and science separately and combined. The researchers administered an…

Liu, Ru-De; Ding, Yi; Zong, Min; Zhang, Dake – School Science and Mathematics, 2014

The aim of this study was to examine the concept development of decimal numbers in 244 Chinese elementary students in grades 4-6. Three grades of students differed in their intuitive sense of decimals and conceptual understanding of decimals, with more strategic approaches used by older students. Misconceptions regarding the density nature of…

Wei, Bing; Li, Yue; Chen, Bo – School Science and Mathematics, 2013

This study aimed to examine the representations of nature of science (NOS) in the eight histories of science selected from three series of integrated science textbooks used in junior high school in China. Ten aspects of NOS were adopted in the analytical framework. It was found that NOS had not been well treated in the selected histories of…

Stonier, Francis W.; Dickerson, Daniel L.; Lucking, Robert – School Science and Mathematics, 2012

The purpose of the study was to examine what science views were accepted or rejected by the Chinese university students. We administered the Thinking about Science Survey Instrument (TSSI) to 75 Chinese students in the Sichuan province who were enrolled in Science and Technology English classes. The TSSI focuses on nine key areas of science and…

Huang, Rongjin; Li, Yeping – School Science and Mathematics, 2012

In this study, we examined 10 expert and 10 novice teachers' noticing of classroom events in China. It was found that both expert and novice teachers, who were selected from two cities in China, highly attended to developing students' mathematics knowledge coherently and developing students' mathematical thinking and ability; they also paid…

Xin, Yan Ping; Liu, Jia; Zheng, Xiaoning – School Science and Mathematics, 2011

This study compared one lesson across four U.S. "traditional" textbook series, two U.S. reform-based textbook series, and one Chinese mathematics textbook series in teaching the connection between multiplication and division. The results showed the differences across U.S. and Chinese lessons in both the teaching and the practice parts of…

Liu, Fuchang – School Science and Mathematics, 2009

Four hundred and three 3rd- and 5th-grade Chinese students took the Multiplication Estimation Test or participated in the interview on it, designed to assess their computational estimation performance on whole-number multiplication. Students perform better when tasks are presented visually than orally. Third graders tend to use rounding based…

Capraro, Mary Margaret; Ding, Meixia; Matteson, Shirley; Capraro, Robert M.; Li, Xiaobao – School Science and Mathematics, 2007

Teachers and researchers have long recognized that students tend to misunderstand the equal sign as an operator; that is, a signal for "doing something" rather than a relational symbol of equivalence or quantity sameness. Students' equal sign misconception has been researched for more than thirty years (Weaver, 1971, 1973) with little…

Cai, Jinfa; Lo, Jane Jane; Watanabe, Tad – School Science and Mathematics, 2002

Examines how selected U.S. and Asian mathematics curricula are designed to facilitate students' understanding of the arithmetic average. Discusses similarities and differences of learning goals, focuses, and concepts among U.S. commercial, Asian, and U.S. reform curriculum series. (Author/KHR)

Boone, William J. – School Science and Mathematics, 1997

Evaluates the attitudes of Chinese boys and girls toward selected science topics. Analysis indicates that male and female Chinese students differed in their response patterns. Females selected more intense responses (strongly agree as opposed to agree, strongly disagree as opposed to disagree). Also, females selected responses suggesting that they…

Jiang, Zhonghong; Eggleton, Patrick – School Science and Mathematics, 1995

Comparison of U.S. and Chinese middle school mathematics programs found lower intensity in U.S. schools because of extensive drill, repetition of content, lack of challenging problem solving, lower expectations, and ability grouping. China utilizes challenging problem solving, no repetition, and high expectations and values. (22 references)…
