The purpose of this study was to develop a hypothetical learning trajectory and related instructional sequence for proportional reasoning based on the theory of Realistic Mathematics Education. In line with this purpose, the hypothetical learning trajectory and related instructional sequence were developed, tested, revised, and finalized in three macrocycles conducted in seventh grade classrooms through a design-based research perspective. The classroom data that emerged during the instruction in the third macrocycle were analyzed by Toulmin's model of argumentation. Findings revealed that teaching ratio and proportion by progressing from informal to formal tools in realistic contexts has significant potential for students to learn this subject in meaningful, comprehensive, and coherent ways. Within the context of this study, in addition to analyzing a classroom community's learning, the means used to support that learning are being portrayed. In this regard, it is foreseen that the results of this study related to design and implementation would be useful for improving the quality of the teaching and learning of ratio and proportion.

Exploring secondary mathematics teachers’ conceptions of mathematical literacy
Genç, Murat; Erbaş, Ayhan Kürşat; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2017)
The purpose of this research study was to investigate secondary mathematics teachers’ conceptions of mathematical literacy. In doing so, the following three crucial interrelated issues were addressed: (i) teachers’ conceptions of what the notion of mathematical literacy means, (ii) teachers’ conceptions of how the development of mathematical literacy could be facilitated, and (iii) teachers’ conceptions of what a mathematics curriculum emphasizing mathematical literacy should look like. The data gathered fo...
The effect of modelling instruction on high school students’ understanding of projectile motion
Şahin, Mine Gökçe; Geban, Ömer; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2008)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of modeling instruction over traditionally designed physics instruction on students’ understanding of projectile motion concepts and their attitudes towards physics. In addition, the effects of gender difference on their understanding of projectile motion concepts and attitudes towards physics were explored. Furthermore, students’ views on the nature of science were searched. The subjects of this study included 88 tenth grade students of four classes i...
The effects of a mathematics teaching methods course on pre-service elementary mathematics teachers’ content knowledge for teaching mathematics
Seviş, Şerife; Koç, Yusuf; Department of Elementary Science and Mathematics Education (2008)
The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of a mathematics teaching methods course on pre-service elementary mathematics teachers’ content knowledge for teaching mathematics (CKTM). In order to accomplish this purpose, pre-service mathematics teachers’ understanding of basic concepts and procedures in school mathematics, use of mathematical definitions, presentation of mathematical content to students, identification of common errors, misconceptions and solution strategies and evaluation of unusua...
THE EFFECT OF MATHEMATICS INSTRUCTION BASED ON FLOW THEORY PRINCIPLES ENHANCED WITH REALISTIC MATHEMATICS EDUCATION ON STUDENTS' ACHIEVEMENT, RETENTION, MOTIVATION AND FLOW STATE
Ay, Yasin; Aksu, Meral; Department of Curriculum and Instruction (2022-2)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of mathematics instruction designed based on Flow Theory and RME on students’ achievement, retention, flow state and motivation. The study was conducted in 2017-2018 spring semester for 11 weeks at a state school in İzmir. In this study, quasi-experimental research design was used. After the groups were determined to be equivalent in the pretests, they were randomly assigned as experimental and control. The experimental group consisted of 37 students, ...
Preservice secondary mathematics teachers' pedagogical content knowledge of composite and inverse functions
Karahasan, Burcu; Ubuz, Behiye; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2010)
The main purpose of the study was to understand preservice secondary mathematics teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge of composite and inverse functions. The study was conducted with three preservice secondary mathematics teachers in Graduate School of Education at Bilkent University. The instruments of the study were qualitative in nature and in four different types of data forms: observations, interviews, documents, and audiovisual materials. Observation data came from fieldnotes by conducting an obser...
