Integrating Tessellation to Connect Geometry with Pattern in Elementary Mathematics Education
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 5, issue 1, 2001, Pages 1~11
The purpose of the study is to introduce how tessellation can be used and integrated to connect geometry to pattern in elementary mathematics educations. Tessellation examples include transformations such as translational symmetry, rotational symmetry, reflection symmetry, and glide reflection symmetry. In addition, many examples of tessellation using softwares such as Escher, TesselMania!, and LOGO programs. Further, future study will continue to foster students and teachers to try to construct their alive mathematics knowledge. The study of geometry and patterns require a rich teaching and learning environment provided by in-depth understanding of thinking connections to objects in real world.
Sociocultural perspectives on mathematics learning using computer
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 5, issue 1, 2001, Pages 13~20
Interaction through communication plays critical role in the mathematics learning in the sociocultural perspectives. The communication make the students construct shared knowledge, and also plays a role of mediation in making meaning. So, we have to consider sociocultural eprspectives in design of the mathematics leaning using computer. While Computer Assisted Instruction was the one-directional teaching program which proceed from computer to students, mathematics leaning using computer in the sociocultural perspectives have to consider two-directional instruction that proceed from computer to students as well as from students to computer. This interactional activity is the critical thing in the mathematics learning using computer.
A Study on the National Assessment of Educational Achievement in Elementary School Mathematics
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 5, issue 1, 2001, Pages 21~39
This study is to develop assessment framework, test items and questionnaire for the National Assessment of Educational Achievement(NAEA), which administered in the elementary and secondary schools across the country in this year(2000). According to the first year study result of the NAEA, the test was administered in two core subjects, Mathematics and Social Studies. In this study, test items and sets of questionnaire and administered pretest were developed in the last year. In this year, the NAEA was administered with the adjusted test items and questionnaires and the results was analyzed and would be reported to the public. NAEA was developed on the basis of national curriculum, especially of the nature and objectives of subject curriculum in Mathematics (and also Social Studies). In the framework of assessment, we set up four differentiated levels of student achievement:‘under basic’,‘basic’,‘intermediary’, and ‘advanced’. Here ‘the intermediary level’means the level of educational achievement in which students can understand average content of subject curriculum. ‘Advanced level ’indicates the level of educational achievement in which students master all the content of subject curriculum and apply basic concepts and principles to a variety of situations. ‘The basic level’means the level of educational achievement in which students do not achieve the intermediary level. Students who do not understand average content of subject curriculum are classified as belonging to the basic level. Finally, this study would explain how to administer and analyze the test int he future. The test result was analyzed to report students’s educational achievement according to regions, content area, behavioral characteristics, and etc. This study would show how to report test results and how to set up student’s academic achievement.
A Comparative Analysis between the Mathematics Curricula of Kindergarten and Elementary School and A Plan for Connecting the Two Curricula
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 5, issue 1, 2001, Pages 41~55
The purpose of this study was to compare and analyze the curricula of kindergarten and elementary school and to present a plan for connecting the two curricula. The curricula emphasized mathematical thinking and problem solving instead of fragmentary knowledge and adopted the streamed curriculum based on children’s ability and interest. And both of them consisted of number and operation, geometry, measurement, statistics, and put emphasis on activity such as real life experience, play, manipulation of concrete objects, and communication. However, there are some kinds of differences between them, because the kindergarten curriculum is not included in the common curriculum, from 1st grade to 10th grade. Thus, this study recommended several ideas based. Thus, this study recommended several ideas based on theories to connect the mathematics curricula of kindergarten and elementary school.
A Conceptual Analysis of Spatial Sense and Exploring an Effective Way of Teaching-Leaning of Spatial Sense
Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 5, issue 1, 2001, Pages 57~69
A new initiative in the 7th curriculum of mathematics is the inclusion of spatial sense in geometry. The purpose of this study is threefold: a) to identify the concepts of spatial sense; b) to systematize the contents of spatial sense by analysis the curricular and texbooks; and c) to explore an effective way of teaching-leaning of spatial sense.
