On the Education of Talented Children for the Creativity Development by Using CAS
Takahashi, Tadashi ;
Research in Mathematical Education, volume 13, issue 1, 2009, Pages 1~4
We are considering the discovery and the promotion of the talent from the viewpoint of education of talented children. The education that develops the talent is from "Individual needs for all children." Computer Algebra System (CAS) can be used as a new possibility in the education that develops the talent. We will need to take advantage of the research results from cognitive science. In order to fully utilize CASs in education, teaching methods that are based on cognitive science will be needed, and these are clearly different from those used in paper and pencil teaching.
An Approach to Study on Mathematical Creativity and Some of its Correlates
Roy, Avijit ;
Research in Mathematical Education, volume 13, issue 1, 2009, Pages 5~12
Mathematical creativity is the most important factor for the advancement of mathematics. Only creative mind can produce creative results. But not much research work has been done in this direction. The present author has taken a scheme of developing a mathematical creativity test to identify creative children in mathematics and to find the relationships of psychoticism, neuroticism, intelligence, ability to achieve in mathematics and general creativity with mathematical creativity and their composite effect on it over a population of Bengali medium school students. In this approach, Bengali adaptation of English version of the "Verbal Test of Creative Thinking" by Mehdi [Mehdi, B. (1985). Manual of verbal test of creative thinking (revised edition). Agra, India: National Psychological Corporation.] has been completed. Works of adapting intelligence test, developing mathematical creativity test, adapting personality test in Bengali are in process. Relationships are to be found later.
The Learning of Mathematical Algorithms and Formulas without Understanding or Flair
Suffolk, John ;
Research in Mathematical Education, volume 13, issue 1, 2009, Pages 13~22
School children in Brunei Darussalam, as elsewhere, learn how to apply a lot of algorithms and formulas in mathematics. These include methods of finding the lowest common multiple and highest common multiple of numbers and methods of factorizing quadratics. Investigations and experience have shown that both able and less able students learn to do these mechanically and unimaginatively and in a way that is reliable when answering examination questions. Most of them do not, however, learn these algorithms and methods so as to develop a deeper insight of what they learn and thereby perform even more effectively in examinations. Yet it is possible to teach these and other methods for understanding in ways that are enjoyable and enable students to use them effectively and with flair.
Open-Ended Questions and Creativity Education in Mathematics
Li, Yuwen ; Li, Dongmei ;
Research in Mathematical Education, volume 13, issue 1, 2009, Pages 23~30
How to promote creativity for all students in mathematics education is always a hot topic for mathematics educators. Based on the theory study and practice in the project "Open-ended Questions in Mathematics" granted by Ministry of Basic Education Curriculum Study Center in China, the paper reported the effect of "Open-ended Questions in Mathematics" on the way to change the development of thinking ability, to inspire students to develop thinking flexibility, to expand their imagination, to stimulate their interest in learning, and to foster students' creativity.
A Study on Influential Factors in Mathematics Modeling Academic Achievement
Li, Mingzhen ; Pang, Kun ; Yu, Ping ;
Research in Mathematical Education, volume 13, issue 1, 2009, Pages 31~48
Utilizing the path analysis method, the study explores the relationships among the influential factors in mathematics modeling academic achievement. The following conclusions are drawn: 1. Achievement motivation, creative inclination, cognitive style, the mathematical cognitive structure and mathematics modeling self-monitoring ability, those have significant correlation with mathematics modeling academic achievement; 2. Mathematical cognitive structure and mathematics modeling self-monitoring ability have significant and regressive effect on mathematics modeling academic achievement, and two factors can explain 55.8% variations of mathematics modeling academic achievement; 3. Achievement motivation, creative inclination, cognitive style, mathematical cognitive structure have significant and regressive effect on mathematics modeling self-monitoring ability, and four factors can explain 70.1% variations of mathematics modeling self-monitoring ability; 4. Achievement motivation, creative inclination, and cognitive style have significant and regressive effect on mathematical cognitive structure, and three factors can explain 40.9% variations of mathematical cognitive structure.
Identifying and Sequencing of the Elementary Minor Concepts of the Highest Common Factor (H.C.F.) and the Lowest Common Multiple (L.C.M.) of Numbers
Alam, S. K. Samsul ;
Research in Mathematical Education, volume 13, issue 1, 2009, Pages 49~61
In this paper some attempts have been made: (a) To identify all the elementary minor concepts of the Highest Common Factor (H.C.F.) and the Lowest Common Multiple (L.C.M.), and (b) To find the sequential order of these elementary concepts. Total 385 elementary minor concepts have been identified and sequenced.
Who are the Mathematically Gifted? Student, Parent and Teacher Perspectives
Bicknell, Brenda ;
Research in Mathematical Education, volume 13, issue 1, 2009, Pages 63~73
This paper reports on student, parent, and teacher perspectives of the characteristics of the mathematically gifted. The data are extracted from a two-year qualitative study that examined multiple perspectives, school policy documents and program provision for 15 mathematically gifted and talented students aged from 10 to 13 years. The findings have implications for identification and program provision.
