Crawford, Angela R.; Johnson, Evelyn S.; Zheng, Yuzhu Z.; Moylan, Laura A. – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
This study describes the initial psychometric evaluation of an Understanding Procedures observation rubric. The instrument is intended to provide feedback to teachers working in mathematics intervention settings. The rubric translates the research base from mathematics education and special education into practice in the form of specific items and…

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…

Edelen, Daniel; Bush, Sarah B.; Simpson, Heather; Cook, Kristin L.; Abassian, Aline – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
The mathematics education community has routinely called for mathematics tasks to be connected to the real world. However, accomplishing this in ways that are relevant to students' lived experiences can be challenging. Meanwhile, mathematical modeling has gained traction as a way for students to learn mathematics through real-world connections. In…

Colonnese, Madelyn W. – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
Mathematical writing recently has been defined as writing to reason and communicate mathematically. But mathematics instructional resources lack guidance for teachers as to how to implement such writing. The purpose of this paper is to describe how methods of design-based research were used to develop an instructional resource when one does not…

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…

Lotter, Christine; Yow, Jan A.; Lee, Melinda; Zeis, Jodi G.; Irvin, Matthew J. – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
This study adds to our understanding of science and mathematics teacher leadership in rural schools. Through In Vivo and Concept coding of teacher interviews, we investigated 20 secondary science and mathematics teachers' perceptions of rural teacher leadership during their participation in a three-year professional development program. As the…

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…

Cervantes-Barraza, Jonathan Alberto; Hernandez Moreno, Antonia; Rumsey, Chepina – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
The purpose of this research is to promote the construction of mathematical proof from argumentation at the primary level. To show this is a viable instructional strategy at the primary level, we use a teaching experiment methodology and a task related to geometric proof in this research study. To model and analyze the collective argumentation…

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…

Eames, Cheryl L.; Barrett, Jeffrey E.; Cullen, Craig J.; Rutherford, George; Klanderman, David; Clements, Douglas H.; Sarama, Julie; Van Dine, Douglas W. – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
This study explored children's area estimation performance. Two groups of fourth grade children completed area estimation tasks with rectangles ranging from 5 to 200 square units. A randomly assigned treatment group completed instructional sessions that involved a conceptual area measurement strategy along with numerical feedback. Children tended…

Sondergeld, Toni A.; Provinzano, Kathleen; Johnson, Carla C. – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
This study investigates the impact of an urban community school reform initiative that focuses on an immigrant and refugee population in middle school. A 6th-8th grade cohort of students in the community school are followed over time and compared to a propensity score matched group on overall GPA, mathematics, and science academic outcomes and…

Wieselmann, Jeanna R.; Roehrig, Gillian H.; Kim, Justine N. – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
With ongoing underrepresentation of women in STEM fields, it is necessary to explore ways to maintain girls' STEM interest throughout elementary and middle school. This study is situated within the context of Designs in STEM (pseudonym), an out-of-school program that engages urban youth in authentic STEM experiences. Participants were 30 girls…

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…
