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…

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…

Byun, JaeHwan; Joung, Eunmi – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
Digital games (e.g., video games or computer games) have been reported as an effective educational method that can improve students' motivation and performance in mathematics education. This meta-analysis study (a) investigates the current trend of digital game-based learning (DGBL) by reviewing the research studies on the use of DGBL for…

Kloser, Matthew; Wilsey, Matthew; Twohy, Kyra E.; Immonen, Audrey D.; Navotas, Ariel C. – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
STEM education has received attention both as a reform pedagogy and as a public means for economic growth and national security. Yet, despite this attention, clarity about what "counts" as STEM and how the individual disciplines relate to an integrated approach remains ambiguous. This article elicits the conceptions about what…

Stohlmann, Micah – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
The integration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education has received increased attention in the last decade. This is in part because of the need for students to increase in their STEM knowledge and competencies. Research is still needed to determine effective implementation models and curriculum for integrated STEM.…

Mohr-Schroeder, Margaret J.; Jackson, Christa; Cavalcanti, Maureen; Jong, Cindy; Schroeder, D. Craig; Speler, Lydia G. – School Science and Mathematics, 2017
The purpose of this study was to investigate parents' attitudes toward mathematics, their students' attitude toward mathematics, and the influence of the parents' attitude on the students' attitude toward mathematics. Data analyses revealed statistically significant positive correlations between parents' and students' attitudes toward mathematics.…

Weinberg, Andrea Elizabeth; Sample McMeeking, Laura Beth – School Science and Mathematics, 2017
Numerous national initiatives call for interdisciplinary mathematics and science education, but few empirical studies have examined practical considerations for integrated instruction in high school settings. The purpose of this qualitative study was twofold. First, the study sought to describe how and to what extent teachers integrate mathematics…

Nagle, Courtney; Casey, Stephanie; Moore-Russo, Deborah – School Science and Mathematics, 2017
This paper brings together research on slope from mathematics education and research on line of best fit from statistics education by considering what knowledge of slope students transfer to a novel task involving determining the placement of an informal line of best fit. This study focuses on two students who transitioned from placing inaccurate…

Reeder, Stacy; Utley, Juliana – School Science and Mathematics, 2017
Classroom teachers need a well-developed deep understanding of fractions and pedagogic practices so they can provide meaningful experiences for students to explore and construct ideas about fractions. This study sought to examine prospective elementary teachers' understandings of fraction by focusing specifically on their use of fractions meanings…

Swars, Susan Lee; Chestnutt, Cliff – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
This mixed methods study explored elementary teachers' (n = 73) experiences with and perspectives on the recently implemented Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-Mathematics) at a high-needs, urban school. Analysis of the survey, questionnaire, and interview data reveals the findings cluster around: familiarity with and preparation…

Kombe, Dennis; Che, S. Megan; Carter, Traci L.; Bridges, William – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
In this article, we present findings from a study that investigated the relationship between all-girls classes, all-boys classes, and coeducational classes on student mathematics self-concept and student perception of classroom environment. Further, we compared responses of girls in all-girls classes to girls in coeducational classes and responses…

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…
