It is true that mathematics subject is totally different from other general subjects .In all over the world subject mathematics perceived as a core in educational systems..it will be better to say that mathematics is a science and used in daily life . Mathematical achievements can be monitored by teachers learning process and by science and education department .The aim of mathematics subject to develop a constructive approach and student must have the ability to construct their own internal structure…
technology that can enhance the learning of mathematics as well as motivate students to learn mathematics effectively. Recent studies suggest that technology can be an effective tool for motivating students (Ertmer & Ottenbreit-Leftwich, 2010; Ertmer, 2010) and is useful for improving students’ mathematics achievement (Demirbilek & Tamer, 2010; Van den Heuvel-Panhuizen et al., 2013). In particular, the use of computers as a learning tool in mathematics has been documented to be related to student…
Mathematics learning performance and Mathematics learning difficulties in China Ningning Zhao Promotor: Prof. Dr. Martin Valcke Co-promoter: Prof. Dr. Annemie Desoete Proefschrift ingediend tot het behalen van de academische graad van Doctor in de Pedagogische Wetenschappen 2011 This Ph.D research project was funded by Ghent University BOF Research Grant (BOF07/DOS/056) Acknowledgements There is still a long and indistinct way and I will keep…
attitudes towards mathematics in order to foster meaningful teaching and learning of mathematics. Images of mathematics seem to be profoundly shaped by epistemological, philosophical, and pedagogical perspectives of one who views mathematics either as priori or a posteriori, absolute or relative, and concrete or nominal. These images, as perceived by an individual can play a significant role in the development of attitudes towards mathematics in the long run. Images of mathematics can have possible…
The Teachings of Mathematics Education in America Math educators in the United States should stress the understanding of the learners and teach them to process certain understanding to succeed in mathematics. The connection between math understanding and the reading of math problems should be raised in smaller grade levels so students have a better understand of math at younger ages. Yet it is not all the students’ part in learning the math, but also the educators’ part to teach the subject in…
Counseling Intervention for Student Success in Mathematics There are numerous research articles on the need for mathematics intervention in the transition grades (Falco, Crethar & Bauman, 2008; Medina, 2011; Ocak & Yamac, 2013; Swanson, 2011). Ramdass (2011) proposed that during the elementary school years, students valued math and its importance. However, in middle school, their interest decreased and they did not have the inner drive to learn mathematics, which may have contributed to their lack of…
My childhood memories regarding learning mathematics has been for the most part positive from 6th grade onwards. From 1st grade to 5th grade I was not conscientious so at times math tests produced anxiety but math was, at the same time, easier and simpler back then. I recall being the fastest person to state the multiplication tables in 4th grade. During 6th to 8th grade, although I was not necessarily the smartest, I landed at the top of the class in advance math since I was very hard working. However…
choose. This rather affects teachers’ use of problem solving approach in mathematics teaching since they mostly rely on the prescribed textbooks as their source of information (McIntosh, Jarret, & Peixotto, 2000). Such phenomenon is similar in most Ethiopian universities. Moreover, textbooks and assessments regimes used in the school and the time schedule for mathematics lessons are hindrances to the teaching of mathematics through problem solving (Anderson, Sullivan & White,2004). Hence, conservative…
INTRODUCTION Mathematics plays an important role in the academe. It is one of the most valued subject matter in the Educational system all over the country. Students are taking this from elementary, secondary, tertiary until Doctoral degree (for some individuals who will pursue Mathematics-related degree in Doctoral degree). In order to solve a problem, the first step is to understand it. Knowing the situation is key to providing the appropriate solution. Again, this parallels good practice in medicine…
Abstract The paper investigates the use of computer aided instruction (CAI) in teaching and learning mathematics. It also explores the use of Instructional Materials Aided Methods (IMAM) as a close substitute. From the study, it was clear that computer-aided instruction enhanced the students performance in mathematics The design of the study was experimental. The hypothesis were tested using T-ratio at 0.05 level of significance and a reliability index of 0.85 was calculated from the test items;…
