Abstract

The study aimed to investigate the teaching practices for mathematics teachers based on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in Jordan. Descriptive analytical approach was used through observing the teachers’ teaching in accordance with STEM. The study sample encompassed 30 teachers of mathematics in Zarqa city who were chosen randomly. The study results showed there are seven behaviours performed by the mathematics teachers in a medium degree consistent with STEM, and 14 behaviours by low-grade mathematics teachers are consistent with STEM. The results also revealed that there were not any differences between those practices attributed to qualifications and years of experience variables.
