Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 9, issue 2, 2005, Pages 75~87
For Probabilistic Reasoning Ability is useful to predict uncertain fact from information, it's getting more important. But when we consider the actual condition of teaching Probabilistic Reasoning Ability, it doesn't correspond with its importance. So the purpose of this study is, by developing Basic Contents of Probabilistic Reasoning Teaching; by developing and applying Probabilistic Reasoning Teaching Program, to study how the application of it effects the progress of the student's Probabilistic Reasoning Ability.

The purposes of this study were to develop an effective teaching material for slow learners in mathematics and to investigate its effect. To achieve the first goal, several pre-used teaching material and the 7th national curriculum for elementary school mathematics were analyzed to set up a framework fur developing new teaching material. Using these developed framework and curriculum data, 370 units of lesson were developed from the 3rd grade to the 6th grade. To investigate the effect of the material, 3 slow learners (2 from the 5th and 1 from the 6th grade) were selected through diagnostic tests. Then supplementary lessons were administered after school to relieve their disability accordingly for seven months. During the lessons(lasted about 40 minutes), teacher observed the subjects in detail and .judged the teaming sequence and the learning pace. Through this observation and the test administered after the treatment, several conclusions were drawn as follow: First, the supplementary lessons using the developed teaching material helped slow learners understand mathematics and solve problems. Especially, the test scores gained on formative evaluation became higher. This might be caused by the material that enabled to relieve the disablement and the teaching method that aimed to give a meaningful mathematical experience. Second, the supplementary lessons affected positively to the affective domain of the slow learners. They convinced themselves to their mathematical ability and became active in their mathematics class. This was observed by researcher and the class teacher in their lessons. Positive attitude toward mathematics and their ability is quite important for mathematics learning especially fur slow learners in mathematics.
The Practice of Performance Assessment in Elementary Mathematics Classroom - cases of the 4th grade -

Education of Primary School Mathematics, volume 9, issue 2, 2005, Pages 107~118
The purposes of this study were to investigate the practice of performance assessment in elementary mathematics classes especially focused on 4th grade. To achieve this, three research questions were posed as follow: First, What do they prepare for performance assessment? Second, What kinds of tests do they use in mathematics performance assessment? Third, What kinds of difficulties do they have for performance assessment and what should be changed for a successful performance assessment in mathematics? To Answer the research questions, three 4th grade classes were selected from three different elementary schools in seoul and three teachers were interviewed. From the data analysis, several conclusion were drawn. First, a plan for mathematics performance assessment was not set by the class teacher who are in charge of the class. The main reason was lack of time. Second, in most of the assessment, written tests were used and the items in the tests were skill-oriented. Third, teachers thought that performance assessment was needed in mathematics. But lack of their time, knowledge and competency, it is difficult to do performance assessment in mathematics.
The development of materials for developing childrens' spatial sense in the 7th National Curriculum and the analysis of its effects

The goals of this study is to analyze develop the materials which help students develop spatial sense in elementary school and to investigate its effects. To accomplish those goals, the 7th National Curriculum was analyzed to identify the contents of spatial sense. After analyzing the 7th National Curriculum, the principle for developing the teaching aids focusing the realization of the contents in the spatial sense was set up. And then various teaching materials which can enhance students' spatial sense was developed. It is consist of 17 kinds of concretely operating materials, 7 kinds of tangram papers, one web-material. To verify the effect of the materials, surveyed the usability of the materials and two classes was selected and tests were administered before and after the treatment. Through this application, several conclusion were drawn. First, a survey result says that teachers thought materials developed would be effective in developing spatial sense. Second, the materials developed were effective to develop spatial sense. The score gained by the experiment group after the treatment was statistically meaningfully higher than the control group. This means that the materials developed helped children to develop spatial sense.
