Middle school students' use of problem-solving steps and their strategies in solving word problems
Alkan, C. Sinan; Akyüz, Didem; Department of Elementary Science and Mathematics Education (2019)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the middle school students’ use of problem solving steps and their use of the strategies in the process of solution of Problem-Solving questions related to topics of numbers generally. The data was gathered in the fall semester of the 2017-2018 academic year. The study sample included 116 (29 fifth graders, 29 sixth graders, 25 seventh graders, and 33 eighth graders) middle school students in Konya, Turkey. Different Problem Solving Achievement tests were used...
Middle school students’ informal reasoning modes and argumentation quality in socioscientific issues: epistemological beliefs and issue familiarity as predictors
Uygun, Cansu Başak; Yılmaz Tüzün, Özgül; Department of Science Education (2022-6)
The purpose of this study was to examine middle school students’ informal reasoning modes, and argumentation quality regarding three different SSI, namely, space explorations (SPE), genetically modified organisms (GMO), and nuclear power plants (NPP); and to investigate how well middle school students’ epistemological beliefs (the dimensions of source/certainty, development, and justification) and issue familiarity predict their informal reasoning modes and argumentation quality. For this purpose, correlati...
Middle school students' proportional reasoning in real life contexts in the domain of geometry and measurement
Ayan Civak, Rukiye; IŞIKSAL BOSTAN, MİNE (2019-01-01)
The purpose of this study was to examine middle school students' proportional reasoning, solution strategies and difficulties in real life contexts in the domain of geometry and measurement. The underlying reasons of the difficulties were investigated as well. Mixed research design was adopted for the aims of the study by collecting data through an achievement test from 935 sixth, seventh and eighth grade students. The achievement test included real life problems that required proportional reasoning, and we...
Middle School Students' Science Self-Efficacy and Its Sources: Examination of Gender Difference
Kiran, Dekant; Sungur, Semra (2012-10-01)
The main purpose of the present study is to investigate middle school students' science self-efficacy as well as its sources and outcomes as a function of gender. Bandura's hypothesized sources of self-efficacy (i.e., mastery experience, vicarious experience, verbal persuasion, and emotional arousal) in addition to being inviting with self and inviting with others were examined as sources of self-efficacy, while cognitive and metacognitive strategy use was examined as an outcome of self-efficacy. A total of...
