The purpose of the study was to investigate the effects of engineering design-based instruction (EDBI) on 7th grade students' nature of engineering (NOE) views. Quantitative research to evaluate students' NOE views was operated through a questionnaire which is "Views for Nature of Engineering -Elementary School Version (VNOE-E)" as pre- and post-test. Moreover, quantitative data results were supported by analyzing change on students' NOE views qualitatively. The sample of the present study was 41 students of 7th grade in a public middle school. While 24 students were taught with engineering design-based instruction (EDBI) in the experimental group, 17 students were taught with curriculum-based instruction (CBI) in the comparison group. According to the result of the one-way ANCOVA (analysis of covariance), the students' NOE views were significantly affected by EDBI. Moreover, the positive effect of the EDBI on the students' views for various NOE aspects was affirmed by the results of qualitative data in the study.

Abdul Aziz, Tian; Bulut, Safure; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2016)
The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of metacognitive instructional method, compared to traditional instruction on eleventh grade science student’s mathematical procedural and conceptual knowledge, and metacognitive skills. Sixty-six eleventh-grade students in a school in Bandung City, Indonesia took part in this study. Matching-only pre-test-post-test control group design was conducted. The classes were randomly assigned to experimental and control group. In the experimental group metacog...
The effects of problem-based learning method on 9th grade students’ achievement in geometry
Apaçık, Mükerrem; Bulut, Safure; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2009)
The purpose of the study was to determine the effects of problem-based learning (PBL) on 9th grade students’ geometry achievement. The study was conducted in a rural town of Ankara with 44 ninth-grade high school students. The randomized pretest-posttest control group design was used. The experimental group was instructed with hybrid PBL and the control group was instructed with traditional teaching methods. The treatment was given for 4 hours every week for a total of six weeks. Geometry Achievement Test (...
