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…

Ntemngwa, Celestin; Oliver, J. Steve – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
The research study reported here was conducted to investigate the implementation of integrated STEM lessons within courses that have a single subject science focus. The purpose also included development of a pedagogical theory. This technology-based teaching was conceptualized by school administrators and teachers in order to provide middle school…

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.…

Lachapelle, Cathy P.; Brennan, Robert T. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
Engineers and policymakers have expressed concern that too few students enter the engineering pipeline. This has led to many efforts to engage students in engineering in after-school programs, summer programs, and more recently, in school curricula. The expectation is that, through these efforts, greater numbers of more demographically diverse…

Morán-Soto, Gustavo; Benson, Lisa – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
This mixed methods research study focuses on two relevant factors in students' decisions to pursue and complete an engineering major: mathematics preparation and mathematics self-efficacy. This study describes the relationship of mathematics self-efficacy on engineering students' performance, behavior, and attitudes in their first college…

Svarovsky, Gina Navoa; Wagner, Catherine; Cardella, Monica – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
The persistent underrepresentation of women in engineering continues to be a complex and difficult challenge. The interactions of young women and their parents during early, family-oriented engineering design experiences can provide girls with opportunities to express agency during an engineering activity, which can ultimately contribute to the…

Minichiello, Angela – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
This paper reports on narrative inquiry research conducted with nontraditional undergraduates as they pursued a common goal of becoming engineers. Participants were enrolled in a two-year engineering transfer program offered in the evenings, via synchronous broadcast distance instruction, by a public, land-grant university situated in the western…

Grohs, Jacob R.; Knight, David B.; Young, Glenda D.; Soledad, Michelle M. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
Situated in the second year of an engineering curriculum, undergraduate engineering mechanics courses represent a significant barrier to persistence in engineering. This study seeks to inform and improve these educational environments by examining academic performance paths over time in a course and explore how students in each path compare in the…

Wright, Christopher G.; Wendell, Kristen B.; Paugh, Patricia P. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
In the growing field of K-12 engineering education, there is limited research that highlights the experiences of youth from historically marginalized communities within engineering learning environments. This study offers insights into the ways in which two groups of elementary school students constructed approaches for participating in the…

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…
