A Study on the Articulation between Kindergarten and 1st Grade in Mathematics Education
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 4, issue 1, 2000, Pages 1~17
The purpose of this study is to analyze the articulation between the kindergarten and 1st grade in mathematics education. for this purpose, the problems of this study selected as follows ：(ⅰ) What is the mathematical concepts related between the kindergarten curriculum and the 1st grade curriculum\ulcorner (ⅱ) How is the mathematics classroom in the kindergarten and 1st grade\ulcorner (ⅲ) Which instructional materials are used in the kindergarten and the 1st grade\ulcorner (ⅳ) What is the new direction of articulation between the kindergarten and first grade in mathematics education\ulcorner The results of this study are as follows ： (ⅰ) According to examining each curriculum the focus is on understanding the basic concepts of number in the kindergarten, on the concepts of number, addition and subtraction in the 1st grade. (ⅱ) By being analyzed the mathematics classrooms of the kindergarten and the 1 st grade, it is different the focus of lessons or the teaching strategies. (ⅲ) As a result of analysing the teaching plans in the kindergarten and the survey in the first grade teachers, used instructional materials are manipulative ones. While mainly used materials are puzzles and blocks in kindergarten, a paduk stone, number cards, sankagi are used in 1st grade. (ⅳ) Finally, we propose the direction of articulation between the kindergarten and 1st grade in mathematics education.
To Make Sense the Teaching and Learning of Mathematics： Mathematics Teachers' Beliefs
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 4, issue 1, 2000, Pages 19~29
This paper is trying to answer the following two questions： "How does it likely to happen that the same content of mathematics is quite differently taught by classroom teachers\ulcorner" and "What would cause these differences in the teaching and learning of mathematics\ulcorner" According to scholars, teachers' beliefs about mathematics and the teaching and learning of mathematics should be first considered when the educational phenomena taking place in classroom are analyzed and interpreted. In this paper, through discussing the directions of reform movements of mathematics education, the definitions and characteristics of teachers' beliefs, and reviewing the previous research on teachers' beliefs, suggestions for the research on mathematics teachers' beliefs are presented.liefs are presented.
Understanding Mathematics Textbook Based on the Seventh School Curriculum
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 4, issue 1, 2000, Pages 31~41
There has been much concern and worry about executing school curriculum from the year 2000 because the seventh curriculum is based on the complicated' differentiated education' concept. Now the new textbook has been developed according to the curriculum. This paper will reinforce the understanding of the curriculum and textbook in school math. In order to do this, this paper will present questions on three subjects to help school teachers and people related to math education to probe and discuss the benefits and problems of teaching math using the new textbook. The three subjects are based on the contents included in certain chapters of the math textbook. These are 1) understanding mathematics concepts using manipulatives or concrete objects, 2) doing math projects or problem solving activities 3) learning mathematics using calculators. furthermore, it is emphasized in this paper that math teachers must keep in mind that they should execute instruction in their own way using the 'textbook' not as a bible but as a guideline.
Counting and the Development of Number Concepts
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 4, issue 1, 2000, Pages 43~49
The purpose of this paper is to address the theory of counting and the development of number concepts. Leslie Steffe and his colleagues developed the theory of children's counting types using the teaching experiment. As the results of their research, they published two books： "Children's counting types" (Steffe, von Glasersfeld, Richards, '||'&'||' Cobb, 1983) and "Construction of arithmetic meanings and strategies" (Steffe, Cobb, ＆ von Glasersfeld, 1988). They classified children's counting types into five categories： Perceptual Counting Stage, Figural Counting Stages, Initial Number Sequence Stage, Tacitly Nested Number Sequence Stage, and Explicitly Nested Number Sequence Stage. The meaning of this theory is added in the last part of this paper. this paper.
A Survey on the Teachers' Belief about Teaching Mathematical Problem Solving and Teaching Practice
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 4, issue 1, 2000, Pages 51~61
Mathematical Problem solving has been the focus of a considerable amount of research over past 30 years. But nowadays problem solving is being beginning to be of less interest to mathematics education researchers. Moreover, mathematics teachers have an urgent need to be provided with well-documented informations about "teaching of(expecially, via) problem solving" though following research issues ：ⅰ) the role of the teacher in a problem-centered classroom, ⅱ) what actually takes place in problem-centered classrooms, and iii) groups and whole classes' problem solving rather than individuals. This paper intends to give some informations about practice of teaching mathematical problem solving in elementary school.ry school.
The Teaching of 'proof' in Elementary Mathematics
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 4, issue 1, 2000, Pages 63~73
The purpose of this paper is to address He possibility of the teaching of 'proof' in elementary mathematics, on the assumption that proof in school mathematics should be used in the broader, psychological sense of justification rather than in the narrow sense of deductive, formal proof. 'Proof' has not been taught in elementary mathematics, traditionally. Most students have had little exposure to the ideas of proof before the geometry. However, 'Proof' cannot simply be taught in a single unit. Rather, proof must be a consistent part of students' mathematical experience in all grades. Or educators and mathematicians need to rethink the nature of mathematical proof and give appropriate consideration to the different types of proof related to the cognitive development of a notion of proof.
A Study on Recognition for Mathematics Subject of Elementary Students： Focused on the 5th and 6th Graders
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 4, issue 1, 2000, Pages 75~82
The purpose of this study is to investigate the recognition fur mathematics subject in the 5th and 6th graders elementary students. To carry out this study, the 5th and 6th graders recognition as learning mathematics subject was investigated by questionaire. The questionaire was analysed by using frequency and percentage. The 5th and 6th graders had difficulties in the hierarchical problem because mathematics is very systematic and hierarchical, and other had difficulties in studying mathematics because the explanation of the problem solving process in the textbook was not detailed. Others had difficulties in studying mathematics because of quick loaming progress, in applying the formulas and property of mathematics.
