Middle school students’ achievement levels, solution strategies, and reasons underlying their incorrect answers in linear and non-linear problems
Ayan, Rukiye; Işıksal Bostan, Mine; Department of Elementary Science and Mathematics Education (2014)
Purposes of the study are three-fold. The first purpose is to investigate sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students’ achievement levels in linear and non-linear problems regarding length, perimeter, area, and volume concepts. The second purpose is to determine correct solution strategies for these problems. The third purpose is to explore underlying reasons for incorrect answers in these problems. A mixed-method research design was utilized to reach these purposes. Participants were selected through cluster...
Middle school mathematics teachers’ mathematical practices in teaching slope, linear equations, and graphs in technology enhanced classroom environment
Yemen Karpuzcu, Seçil; Işıksal Bostan, Mine; Department of Elementary Education (2017)
The aim of this study was to examine an in-service middle school mathematics teacher’s mathematical practices in teaching slope, linear equations and graphs in a technology enhanced classroom environment while enacting an instructional sequence that was designed based on the national curriculum. The technology utilized in the study was GeoGebra materials within computers that were developed by the teacher and the researcher to be used for the instructional sequence. The data was collected during the spring ...
