Prospective Middle School Mathematics Teachers' Covariational Reasoning for Interpreting Dynamic Events During Peer Interactions
Yemen-Karpuzcu, Secil; Ulusoy, Fadime; Işıksal Bostan, Mine (2017-01-01)
This study investigated the covariational reasoning abilities of prospective middle school mathematics teachers in a task about dynamic functional events involving two simultaneously changing quantities in an individual process and also in a peer interaction process. The focus was the ways in which prospective teachers' covariational reasoning abilities re-emerge in the peer interaction process in excess of their covariational reasoning. The data sources were taken from the individual written responses of p...
Prospective teachers' perceptions on different aspects of portfolio
Ok, Ahmet (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2010-09-01)
This qualitative-case study examined how portfolio and portfolio assessment were perceived by prospective teachers. The participants were 23 prospective teachers from seven different teaching areas from a Turkish university. A semi-structured individual interview was conducted. The interview schedule included 15 open-ended questions. The main results emerged from content analysis were that prospective teachers perceived portfolio as a learning and an assessment tool. Further, they believed that portfolio wa...

Prospective Middle School Mathematics Teachers' Global Argumentation Structures
Erkek, Ozlem; Işıksal Bostan, Mine (2019-03-01)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the nature of global argumentation structures of prospective middle school mathematics teachers in a technology enhanced environment. A qualitative case study was conducted with 8 participants from an Elementary Mathematics Education undergraduate program of one of the public universities in Ankara. Two implementations, 1 of which included 2 geometry tasks on triangles and another which included 2 geometry tasks based on circles, were conducted. Subsequently, ...
Prospective Teachers' Knowledge on Middle School Students' Possible Descriptions of Integers
Kubar, Aysenur; Çakıroğlu, Erdinç (2017-01-01)
This study aims to reveal prospective middle school mathematics teachers' knowledge regarding the possible misconceptions and/or errors of middle school students in describing integers. In addition to this, it aims to reveal the possible reasons underlying these from the perspective of prospective teachers. Data was qualitatively collected from 38 Turkish prospective teachers by an open-ended questionnaire. The results show that although prospective teachers are familiar with possible misconceptions and/or ...
