This study aimed to investigate the relationship among students' prior knowledge, meaningful learning orientation (MLO), reasoning ability (RA) and achievement in human circulatory system in learning cycle (LC) and traditional classrooms (TC). In this study, Human Circulatory System Achievement Test was applied twice as pre-test and after treatment period as a post-test to both experimental and control groups. Two teachers and four classes and total of 60 11th grade students were participated in this em study. Pearson correlation analysis results revealed that in LC, basically, students' understanding of human circulatory system (HCS) was related with their relevant prior knowledge and RA. However, in TC, basically students' understanding of HCS was related with their MLO. (C) 2012 Published by Elsevier Ltd.

DİNDAR, AYLA ÇETİN; Geban, Ömer (2017-01-01)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of 5E learning cycle model oriented instruction (LCMI) on 11th-grade students' conceptual understanding of acids and bases concepts and student motivation to learn chemistry. The study, which lasted for 7 weeks, involved two groups: An experimental group (LCMI) and a control group (the traditional teacher-centered instruction [TTCI]). Based on multivariate analysis of covariance results, the LCMI students outperformed the TTCI students in terms of conc...
