A Study on Jigsaw Model Application in Teaching and Learning Mathematics
YOO, Sang Eun ; SON, Hong Chan ;
Research in Mathematical Education, volume 19, issue 4, 2015, Pages 195~209
DOI : 10.7468/jksmed.2015.19.4.195
The current study investigated meaning of Jigsaw model application in teaching and learning mathematics based on the literature research and analysis of Jigsaw models. Through related literature, properties of the tasks of the expert sheets in mathematics are examined. Then the advantages of the application of Jigsaw in mathematics are discussed in terms of the realizing mathematical connections and promoting positive affective outcomes of Korean students in mathematics.
A Case Study of Flipped Learning in Calculus of one Variable on Motivation and Active Learning

Information Technology influenced on classroom to change the teaching and learning method. Recently, flipped learning method became a hot issue in education by using Information Technology. Learning management system that is introduced in our university in the spring semester 2015, made it possible to apply flipped learning method. So, we used the flipped learning method in a calculus course. In this paper, we found that flipped learning in Calculus we was a little bit affirmative in the aspect of motivation and active learning from students' response on flipped learning method. We analyzed the reason that students were not so positive in continuing flipped learning even though they liked flipped learning a little bit better than traditional learning. We suggest what we pay attention to for applying the flipped learning method effectively.
The Relationship between Pre-service Teachers' Geometric Reasoning and their van Hiele Levels in a Geometer's Sketchpad Environment

In this study, I investigated how pre-service teachers (PSTs) proved three geometric problems by using Geometer's SketchPad (GSP) software. Based on observations in class and results from a test of geometric reasoning, eight PSTs were sorted into four of the five van Hiele levels of geometric reasoning, which were then used to predict the PSTs' levels of reasoning on three tasks involving proofs using GSP. Findings suggested that the ways the PSTs justified their geometric reasoning across the three questions demonstrated their different uses of GSP depending on their van Hiele levels. These findings also led to the insight that the notion of "proof" had somewhat different meanings for students at different van Hiele levels of thought. Implications for the effective integration of technology into pre-service teacher education programs are discussed.
Design and Implementation of Mathematics Textbooks in Support of Effective Teaching for Secondary Schools: A Chinese Case

Mathematics textbook plays a significant role in shaping students' learning of mathematics. Logic, rigor and abstraction as typical features of the formalization of mathematics, dominate mathematics textbooks around the world, which is regarded as one of the important origins of students' learning difficulties in mathematics. An innovative series of Chinese mathematic textbooks is presented in this paper. Supported by the supplementary materials excerpts from the textbooks, it gives a comprehensive theoretical analysis of the principles of design and implementation of this series of mathematics textbooks. The effectiveness of this series of textbooks is demonstrated by student achievement and secondary research data. It shows that series of Chinese mathematic textbooks has largely decreased students' learning difficulties in mathematics and enhance classroom teaching efficiency. It suggests that prioritizing the essence of mathematics and reducing abstraction is an important notion for mathematics textbook design and implementation.
The Study about the Influence of Mathematics Language on Mathematics Reading
YANG, Hongping ; YU, Ping ;
Research in Mathematical Education, volume 19, issue 4, 2015, Pages 267~278
DOI : 10.7468/jksmed.2015.19.4.267
The study is about the influence of literal, symbolic and graphics languages on mathematics reading. The results show that the scores of symbolic language volume are significantly lower than that of literal language volume. The abstractness of the mathematical symbols will not have a significant impact on the students with excellent mathematical academic, but as for the medium and poor students, abstract mathematics symbols will cause their cognitive impairment. Due to picture-superiority-effect, the test scores of the graphics language volume are significantly higher than that of the symbolic language volume. Graphics language will have a significant impact on the excellent and medium students, but has no impact on the poor students.
