Result Analysis on Making Activities 1 to 100 with digits 1, 9, 9, 6
Kim, Sang-Lyong ;
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 13, issue 2, 2010, Pages 55~66
The basic direction of mathematical education for the 21st century is focused on helping student to understand mathematics and developing their problem solving abilities, mathematical disposition and mathematical thinking. Elementary mathematics teachers should help students make sense of mathematics, confident of their ability, and make learning environment comfortable for students to participate in. Through making activities 1 to 100 with digits 1,9,9,6, students improved the interest and preference of students about mathematics. This game is useful to foster students' mathematical thinking(concepts of exponential number expression, roots concept(
), gauss function()) and mathematical disposition. If students are helped to be interested in mathematics through mathematical games, they regard mathematics as interesting and challengeable subject to let themselves think many ways.
Effects of Math Lessons Based on Constructivism Ideas on Learners' Achievements - With Focus on The Area of Fractions for 4th Graders -

The purpose of the research is to assure the effect of learner-centered instruction driven from the constructivism. The school in participation of the research is one of them called "achievement increase intensive school". Quasi-experimental design is applied for the research. Some conclusions were drawn from the research. Experimental group' achievements of both "learned contents" and "none learned contents" were more superior than ones gained from comparative group with statistically significant difference. The results implied that learner-centered instruction is effective for students who have low achievements from standards tests.
A Study on Teaching Figures Based on van Hiele's Theory - Focused on the 4th Graders -

The purpose of this study is to develop a teaching program in consideration of the geometrical thinking levels of students to make a contribution to teaching figures effectively. To do this, we checked the geometrical thinking levels of fourth-graders, developed a teaching program based on van Hiele's theory, and investigated its effect on their geometrical thinking levels. The teaching program based on van Hiele's theory put emphasis on group member interaction and specific activities through offering various geometrical experiences. It contributed to actualizing activity-centered, student-oriented, inquiry-oriented and inductive instruction instead of sticking to expository, teacher-led and deductive instruction. And it consequently served to improving their geometrical thinking levels, even though some students didn't show any improvement and one student was rather degraded in that regard - but in the former case they made partial progress though there was little marked improvement, and in the latter case she needs to be considered in relation to her affective aspects above all. The findings of the study suggest that individual variances in thinking level should be recognized by teachers. Students who are at a lower level should be given easier tasks, and more challenging tasks should be assigned to those who are at an intermediate level in order for them to have a positive self-concept about mathematics learning and ultimately to foster their thinking levels.
A Comparative Study for Elementary School Mathematics Activity Book in Accordance with the Curriculum
Suh, Bo-Euk ;
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 13, issue 2, 2010, Pages 99~111
This study is on a supplementary textbook, a mathematics activity book which is first introduced in the fifth curriculum. There was three revision of mathematics activity book with the change of curriculum. On this study, the aim of introducing mathematics activity book, the direction of development, the organization system and the relation with curriculum were analyzed systematically on the basis of literature consideration.
