Koyunkaya, Melike Yigit – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
Students need to construct strong knowledge of angles as well as relationships between angles and side lengths in a triangle to succeed in geometry. Although many researchers pointed out the importance of angles and angle-related concepts, students and teachers have had limited knowledge of these concepts. This study is a part of a larger study,…

Capraro, Robert M.; Barroso, Luciana R.; Nite, Sandra; Rice, Devyn; Lincoln, Yvonna; Young, Jamaal; Young, Jemimah – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
STEM disciplinary language is a necessary component for STEM success. It can be developed through experiences and attention to the development of STEM activities that are rich in language and can be acquired through practical experiences and systematic practice. Secondary students participated in an informal STEM summer camp where they learned to…

Akerson, Valarie L.; Carter, Ingrid S.; Park Rogers, Meredith A.; Pongsanon, Khemmawadee – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
In this mixed methods study, the researchers developed a video-based measure called a "Prediction Assessment" to determine preservice elementary teachers' abilities to predict students' scientific reasoning. The instrument is based on teachers' need to develop pedagogical content knowledge for teaching science. Developing a knowledge…

Yilmaz, Rezan; Argun, Ziya – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
Mathematical abstraction is an important process in mathematical thinking. Also, visualization is a strong tool for searching mathematical problems, giving meaning to mathematical concepts and the relationships between them. In this paper, we aim to investigate the role of visualizations in mathematical abstraction through a case study on five…

Affeldt, Fiona; Meinhart, Daniel; Eilks, Ingo – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
Practical work is an essential component of science education. However, insufficient approaches towards practical work can limit the potential it has for promoting both students' motivation and situational interest. One suggestion to solve this problem is to use alternative forms of lab instruction which are both motivating and easy to comprehend.…

Bergeson, Kristi; Rosheim, Kay – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
This study explored 6th grade students reading of science text on the iPad to better understand how students with varying strengths of comprehending text and current academic abilities interpret text on their iPads. Our study sample compared three students with strong reading scores based on informal reading inventories, standardized tests, and…

Lamb, Alexandra J.; Weiner, Jennie Miles – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
School districts are increasingly turning to iPads as a mechanism to increase student engagement and achievement and innovate teaching and learning. Research shows this is a feasible, albeit challenging goal. In this article, we examine the case of a large-scale iPad rollout in the Los Angeles Unified School District in 2013. Using institutional…

Harrison, Taylor R.; Lee, Hollylynne S. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
Over the last several years, iPads have become increasingly popular in the classroom. The number of available apps that could be used in the mathematics classroom are countless, but some make better mathematical learning tools than others. This research presents a set of sixteen criteria that can be used to evaluate the potential of an iPad app to…

O'Byrne, W. Ian; Radakovic, Nenad; Hunter-Doniger, Tracey; Fox, Madison; Kern, Reggie; Parnell, Stephanie – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
In recent years, tablets have been shown to serve as incredible teaching tools in classrooms around the world. In mathematics education, divergent thinking, creativity, and play may play a key role in formation of adaptive thinking and math achievement. This qualitative, participatory action research investigated the use of an instructional model…

Kier, Meredith W.; Khalil, Deena – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
The recent emphasis on engineering practices provides an opportunity for K-12 science and mathematics teachers to apply STEM concepts to real-world engineering design challenges (EDCs) for students (Next Generation Science Standards, 2013). We argue that engineering practices are more equitable when they are relatable to students and rooted in…

Young, Jamaal; Ortiz, Nickolaus; Young, Jemimah – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
This study is a meta-analysis of the effects of out-of-school time (after school, summer camps, enrichment programs, etc.) on the student interest in STEM. This study was guided by the following research questions: (1) How effective is OST as a means to foster student interest in STEM? (2) How does the effectiveness of OST differ by program and…

Sadler, Troy D.; Foulk, Jaimie A.; Friedrichsen, Patricia J. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
Socio-scientific teaching and learning (SSI-TL) has been suggested as an effective approach for supporting meaningful learning in school contexts; however, limited tools exist to support the work of designing and implementing this approach. In this paper, we draw from a series of four design based research projects that have produced SSI…
