This working session will engage participants in critically examining grades 6–7 assessment items designed to measure students’ understandings of some of the “big ideas” of early algebra. Conjectured early-algebra learning progressions for grades 3–8 will frame the examination and subsequent discussion.

Analysis of analogy use on function concept in the ninth grade mathematics textbook and classrooms
Ünver, Emel; Ubuz, Behiye; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2009)
The primary objective of the current study was to examine how analogies are used on function concept in the ninth grade mathematics textbook and classrooms. Using qualitative research procedure comprising textbook analysis and classroom observations, a picture was developed of how analogies used on function concept in ninth grade mathematics textbook and classrooms. One mathematics textbook, the primary source for observed classes was selected and analyzed for the study. Chapter entitled as “functions” in t...
Investigating middle school students’ achievement and strategies in proportional reasoning problems
Yılmaz, Gamze Öze; Akyüz, Didem; Department of Elementary Science and Mathematics Education (2019)
The aims of the study are to specify the academic achievement of the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grade students in proportional reasoning problems, to determine how the academic achievement of these students change according to problem types, to examine their solution strategies in these problems, and to reveal how these strategies diversify from fifth to eighth grade. To collect data in order to achieve these aims, a proportional reasoning test were prepared. The study was designed as a mixed study. I...
Exploring Relationships among Students Learning Approach, Motivational Goals,and Achievement
Yılmaz Tüzün, Özgül; Ertepınar, Hamide (2007-04-15)
The purposes of this study were to investigate the relationship among students’ learning approach, motivational goals, previous semester science grades and their achievement in atom and periodic table concepts and explore how well do the learning approach, motivational goal and students’ previous semester science grades predict students’ achievement. The surveys of this study were administered to 416 students enrolled in seventh grade elementary schools located in Ankara, Turkey. Correlational analysis ...
Implementation of case-based instruction on electrochemistry at 11th grade level
Tarkın, Ayşegül; Kondakçı, Esen; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2014)
The main purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of case-based instruction over traditional instruction on eleventh grade high school students’ understanding of electrochemistry concepts. In addition, the effect of instruction on students’ attitudes toward chemistry, chemistry self-efficacy beliefs and motivation to learn chemistry were investigated. The study was carried out during 2010-2011 spring semester in three Anatolian high schools in Ankara, Turkey. A total of 113 (47 males and 66 fe...
Predictive influence of students achievement motivation, meaningful learning approach and epistemological beliefs on classification concept achievement
Kızılgüneş, Berna; Öztekin, Ceren; Department of Elementary Science and Mathematics Education (2007)
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the predictive influences of epistemological beliefs, achievement motivation, learning approaches on sixth grade students’ achievement in classification concepts. The study was carried out in the fall 2006-2007 semester. One thousand forty one 6th grade students from twenty five randomly selected elementary schools in Çankaya district of Ankara participated in this study. In this study Turkish version of the Learning Approach Questionnaire, Epistemological...
