In this article we give a brief overview of the present state of research conducted by Turkish community on mathematical thinking. Particularly, the goal of this paper is to share some prototypical examples of research conducted in mathematics education by the Turkish mathematics education community, around the theme of mathematical thinking and supporting its development. The research on mathematics education is quite a recent achievement. To review the research on mathematical thinking mathematics educators' studies were researched extensively. Later a series of content analyses of the research publications were conducted to determine the contribution of Turkish researchers on mathematical thinking. Our examination of the selected research studies reveals that the Turkish researcher has contributed rarely to the process aspect of mathematical thinking and extensively to the product of this process and the issues that support or hinder the development of mathematical thinking.

Urban middle class, lifestyle and taste in Keçiören and Çankaya, Ankara:distinction through home furniture, furnishing and decoration
Arslan, Zerrin; Ayata, Sencer; Rittersberger Tılıç, Helga İda; Department of Sociology (2011)
This dissertation aims to scrutinize the fractions of the Turkish middle class, based on Bourdieu’s theory of social, cultural, economic capitals and habitus. Distinction among the fractions was identified through lifestyles and tastes via home furnishing and decoration. A quantitative field research was conducted in two towns of Ankara, the capital city of Turkey, namely Keçiören and Çankaya, and the data was collected by applying a detailed questionnaire on a sample that is not representative. The data wa...
A Meta-Synthesis Study Identifying the Landscapes of Pre- and In-service Math Teachers' Knowledge in the Turkish Context
GULMEZ-DAG, Gulcin; Yıldırım, Ali (2016-01-01)
This study aims to present a synthesis of empirical studies conducted in Turkey on pre- and in-service math teachers' knowledge and to recapitulate the existing conceptualization in this particular line of research in the local context. Considering the interwoven and sophisticated nature of teachers' knowledge (Seidel & Shavelson, 2007), it sets out to enhance the understanding on what constitutes and should constitute these math teachers' knowledge by discovering the frequently studied research strands in ...

This paper aims to review the current state of doctoral programs in mathematics education in Turkish universities. In this context, we first provide some brief background information about higher education system and teacher education policies in Turkey. Then the major national initiatives towards future faculty development efforts are explained. Finally, the nature and components of mathematics education doctoral programs in Turkey is provided. In doing so, we provide information about admission procedures...
Major debates in the Turkish left on class in the 1960s
Mura, Beycan; Şengül, Hüseyin Tarık; Department of Political Science and Public Administration (2003)
This study deals with on what kind of a class conceptualisation the different approaches in the Turkish left in the 1960's based their analysis. The way in which these approaches made the class structure of Turkey, how they related this class analysis with their suggested revolutionary strategies constitute the basic axes of the discussion conducted by the study. In order to find out on what methodological and theoretical grounds the different conceptualisations of class are based, both the ideas of the mai...
