A Case Study on Why Students Dislike Math
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 2, issue 2, 1998, Pages 75~83
The present study investigated why students do not like math using deep-level interview method. The reasons of why students dislike math were classified into three： socio-cultural, and individual factors, and math itself. Socio-cultural factors include the environments where students are reared, family, and school culture. Individual factors mean competitive disposition, preconception of math, active disposition, and conflicts with friends or teachers. Finally, students seem to dislike math because math itself is a difficult subject. In addition, textbook and instruction are also difficult, or they are lack of fundamental math knowledge. There may be other reasons of why students do not like math subject. In spite of those reasons, there should be some efforts to analyze why students dislike math and to help the students have interests in math.
Writing Textbooks for Elementary School Mathematics in Accordance with the Seventh Curriculum
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 2, issue 2, 1998, Pages 85~102
Since textbooks for elementary school mathematics in accordance with the seventh curriculum are 'Class I' textbooks, which are used as one and only one textbooks throughout the country, the following aspects have been considered： In the legal aspect, the contents including the curriculum for mathematics asked of the Writing Committee by the Ministry of Education were reflected; in the aspect of theory of mathematics education, the textbooks are written in a way appropriate to theory of mathematics education; and in the aspect of application of reality, the textbooks are written to help improving mathematics education in classrooms. Therefore, the main frame of writing the textbooks is to make students feel proud enough to say
The Analysis of the Effects of the Problem Centered Instruction and Explanatory Instruction
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 2, issue 2, 1998, Pages 103~112
The purpose of this study is to analyze the effects of the Problem Centered Instruction(PCI) and the Explanatory Instruction(El). Two classes of third grade children(69 children) were sampled from an elementary school in Chung-Buk and given a treatment. The results of this study as follows： (1) There was no significant difference between the PCI group and the El group. This means that the PCI doesn't decrease the computational ability, even though the ordinary calculation methods are not taught in the PCI group. (2) The PCI group got scores significantly higher than the El group on application problems. It may be interpreted that the PCI is more effective than the El in problem solving.
A Study on Correlations among Affective Characteristics, Mathematical Problem-Solving, and Reasoning Ability of 6th Graders in Elementary School
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 2, issue 2, 1998, Pages 113~131
The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationships among affective characteristics, mathematical problem-solving abilities, and reasoning abilities of the 6th graders for mathematics, and to analyze whether the relationships have any differences according to the regions, which the subjects live. The results are as follows： First, self-awareness is the most important factor which is related mathematical problem-solving abilities and reasoning abilities, and learning habit and deductive reasoning ability have the most strong relationships. Second, for the relationships between problem-solving abilities and reasoning abilities, inductive reasoning ability is more related to problem-solving ability than deductive reasoning ability Third, for the regions, there is a significant difference between mathematical abilities and deductive reasoning abilities of the subjects.
The Effects of Mathematical Problem Posing Activities by the Fourth Graders
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 2, issue 2, 1998, Pages 133~144
We examined two kinds of problem posing, 'problem making' and 'problem modifying' to find which one is more effective for improving mathematical problem solving ability according to the student's learning-levels and sexes. The results showed that 'problem making' is more effective for high and middle-level groups than 'problem modifying'. There was no big difference according to the sexes. These facts implies that making a problem when a situation was presented is more effective to develop problem solving ability than modifying a problem ： modifying some conditions and contents of given problem.
