An Analysis of Intuitive Thinking of Elementary Students in Mathematical Problem Solving Process
You, Dae-Hyun ; Kang, Wan ;
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 12, issue 1, 2009, Pages 1~20
The purposes of this study are to analyze elementary school student's intuitive thinking in the process of mathematical problem solving and to analyze elementary school student's errors of intuitive thinking in the process of mathematical problem solving. According to these purposes, the research questions can be set up as followings. (1) How is the state of illumination of the elementary school student's intuitive thinking in the process of mathematical problem solving? (2) What are origins of errors by elementary school student's intuitive thinking in the process of mathematical problem solving? In this study, Bogdan & Biklen's qualitative research method were used. The subjects in this study were 4 students who were attending the elementary school. The data in this study were 'Intuitine Thinking Test', records of observation and interview. In the interview, the discourses were recorded by sound and video recording. These were later transcribed and analyzed in detail. The findings of this study were as follows: First, If Elementary school student Knows the algorithm of problem, they rely on solving by algorithm rather than solving by intuitive thinking. Second, their problem solving ability by intuitive model are low. What is more they solve the problem by Intuitive model, their Self- Evidence is low. Third, in the process of solving the problem, intuitive thinking can complement logical thinking. Last, in the concept of probability and problem of probability, they are led into cognitive conflict cause of subjective interpretation.
A Study on Curriculum and Lecture Assessment between Daegu National University of Education and Auckland College of Education in the New Zealand
Choi, Chang-Woo ;
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 12, issue 1, 2009, Pages 21~30
National university of education here in Korea have had a special purpose training competent primary school teacher hoping our nation and society so far. We can guess how students are educated and which direction focuses on education in college or university if we see the curriculum of the university. But the content of mathematics curriculum which is currently operated in ten university of education is a little different according to the major subject (pure mathematics, subject matters and so on)of the faculty or situation of the university. The purpose of this study is to get some suggestive points for the development of mathematics program and lecture assessment system which are appropriate training primary school teacher of future oriented as a special purpose university with looking around of lecture assessment system as well as comparing and looking around of the curriculum which are establishing at the auckland college of education there in the New Zealand and mathematics education department here in Daegu national university of education.
A Study on Statistical Thinking and developing Statistical thoughts
Kim, Sang-Lyong ;
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 12, issue 1, 2009, Pages 31~38
This paper aims to develop a program which cultivates statistical ability for elementary students. For this purpose, I examined the relationship between mathematical thinking and statistical thinking. I developed statistical programs including classification, discussion of data, generating statistical problem and project program. As result, this study suggests implications for further elementary statistical education.
An Analysis on Lessons and Actual Teaching of 'Game Activities' in Elementary Mathematics Textbooks
Yoon, Su-Ryoun ; Kang, Wan ; Paik, Seok-Yoon ;
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 12, issue 1, 2009, Pages 39~55
For this study, the 'Game Activities' lessons presented in the math textbooks from the 1st grade to the 6th were examined in terms of learning materials, the learning members' make-up, the playing structures, and the relation with the contents. In addition, the survey by means of questionnaires was conducted to analyze the actual condition of teachers' guidance in the field. The findings from this research were as follows: First, as for the activities presented in the textbooks, it turned out that too much emphasis is placed upon plays mainly using learning materials such as cards and dice played by teams of two. In addition, there have been shown negative aspects in various ways of plays putting too much emphasis on certain types of plays such as
structures. As for the relation with the contents, although lots of efforts were taken to connect the playing activity to the lesson contents, there were units presenting plays based on the preceding lesson's repeated activity, ones that have weak link with the contents. Second, it turned out that the teachers had negative attitude on the guidance using the 'Game Activities' lesson, although they were aware of the effects of playing in math learning. This seemed to result from the delicate variety and insufficient preparation for the play. Besides, the findings indicate that the appreciation and activity of the 'Game Activities' lesson presented as a way of performance evaluation. for play need to be provided in school or classrooms for teachers and students to make good use of them.
