Article
Growth mindset has received more focus in schools in the past fifteen years as a possible way to improve various educational outcomes. Helping students to believe in the malleability of intelligence and the potential to improve in ability and various human qualities is important. Students with growth mindsets set self-improvement as achievement goa...
Article
Mathematical modeling has many possible benefits for students when implemented in K–12 mathematics instruction. When teachers have positive self-efficacy for mathematical modeling it is more likely they will continue to implement it. In order to measure teacher’s self-efficacy in the context of teaching mathematical modeling the development of an i...
Article
Mathematical modelling has garnered national and international interest due to its importance. Mathematical modelling can develop students’ mathematical understandings, teamwork and communication practices. The ability for teachers to select appropriate mathematical modelling tasks is important to ensure the benefits listed for students are realize...

The discipline of mathematics in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) integration has not yet been consistently connected in a clear way for a large amount of high school mathematics teacher to implement STEM integration well. In response to this I have proposed a focus on integrated steM education; the integration of STEM subje...
Article
An escape room can be a great way for students to apply and practice mathematics they have learned. This article describes the development and implementation of a mathematical escape room with important principles to incorporate in escape rooms to help students persevere in problem solving.
Article
Dude Perfect has one of the most popular YouTube channels in the United States. An example mathematical activity connected to a Dude Perfect video is described along with the incorporation of assessing and advancing questions.
Article
Of the four subjects in an integrated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) approach, mathematics has not received enough focus. This could be in part because mathematics teachers may be apprehensive or unsure about how to implement integrated STEM education in their classrooms. There are benefits to integrated STEM in a mathemat...
Article
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. Ma...
Article
Full-text available
Internationally mathematical modeling is garnering more attention for the benefits associated with it. Mathematical modeling can develop students' communication skills and the ability to demonstrate understanding through different representations. With the increased attention on mathematical modeling, there is a need for more curricula to be develo...
Article
Full-text available
Mathematical modelling is garnering more attention and focus at the secondary level in many different countries because of the knowledge and skills that students can develop from this approach. This paper serves to summarize what is it known about secondary mathematical modelling to guide future research. A targeted and general literature search wa...
Article
Full-text available
Mathematical modelling has often been emphasized at the secondary level, but more research is needed at the elementary level. This paper serves to summarize what is it known about elementary mathematical modelling to guide future research. A targeted and general literature search was conducted and studies were summarized based on five categories: c...
Article
Background EngineeringFaculty members should adopt effective pedagogical approaches in order to maximize student learning. The beliefs of faculty members about instructional practice are an important construct in determining what and how they teach.PurposeThis study investigates the effect of faculty members’ involvement in model-eliciting activiti...
Article
Background It is crucial that engineering educators apply effective pedagogical approaches in order to maximize student learning. When considering instructional practice, the beliefs of an educator represent an important construct in the determination of what and how they teach. Purpose This study investigates the impact of faculty involvement i...
Article
Full-text available
Mathematical modeling is an essential integrated piece of the Common Core State Standards. However, researchers have shown that mathematical modeling activities can be difficult for teachers to implement. Teachers are more likely to implement mathematical modeling activities if they have their own successful experiences with such activities. This p...

Recent U.S. national documents have laid the foundation for highlighting the connection between science, technology, engineering and mathematics at the K-12 level. However, there is not a clear definition or a well-established tradition of what constitutes a quality engineering education at the K-12 level. The purpose of the current work has been t...
Chapter
The increased emphasis of engineering integration in K-12 schools has been one response to the need to improve science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) teacher education development. Engineering-based activities can enable teachers to employ student-centered pedagogies and provide students with real-world context to apply mathematic...
Chapter
Engineering is the bond in STEM integration in K–12 education. In this chapter , we present an overview of the literature on engineering in K–12 STEM integration, as well as a framework for the development and assessment of integrated STEM activities. The usefulness of the framework is demonstrated through application to three research-based STEM i...
Article
Background Modeling abilities play an important role in engineering. The creation and use of representations is a central aspect of modeling, and students who are learning to model often use a variety of representations to express, test, revise, and communicate their own thinking. Consequently, model development often depends on representational fl...
Article
Real world mathematical modeling activities can develop needed and valuable 21st century skills. The knowledge and skills to become adept at mathematical modeling need to develop over time and students in the elementary grades should have experiences with mathematical modeling. For this to occur elementary teachers need to have positive experiences...
Article
There are a variety of technologies that are increasingly being integrated into mathematics classrooms for their potential to increase student engagement, motivation, understanding, and achievement. YouTube can be an especially useful technology for students to create, share and interact with others, and learn more about mathematics. However, the m...

Quality Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education is vital for the future success of students. Integrated STEM education is one way to make learning more connected and relevant for students. There is a need for further research and discussion on the knowledge, experiences, and background that teachers need to effectively te...
Article
Over the past several years, the increased energy behind the Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics (STEM) integration movement has inspired the addition of more engineering related content to the K-12 landscape. National standards for engineering are also just now coming into the landscape. As states begin to add engineering to their stan...
Article
Model-Eliciting Activities (MEAs) are interdisciplinary, engineering based problems set in a realistic context with a client. MEAs allow researchers and teachers to observe students' development of conceptual models as they go through the cycle of express, test, and revise with their solutions. MEAs are being used increasingly in K-College level cl...
