Communications of Mathematical Education, volume 20, issue 1, 2006, Pages 9~18
In this paper we study on concept analogy of altitude and escribed circle of triangle. We start from following theorems related with sides of triangle: existence of triangle, Pythagoras theorem, cosine theorem, Heron formula. Using concept analogy of sides-altitudes, altitudes-escribed circle's radii we discover some properties of altitude and escribed circle's radii and prove these properties.
A Study on Administration and Teaching of R&E in Korea Science Academy - Laying Stress on Mathematics Project Na7 -
Han In-Ki ;
Communications of Mathematical Education, volume 20, issue 1, 2006, Pages 19~32
We study on administration system and teaching of R &E(Research and Education) in Korea Science Academy(KSA) laying stress on Mathematics project No.7. We analyze in detail administration system of R&E in KSA(for example, aim, human constitution, practical execution), and draw some meaningful suggestions in order to receive successful results in R&E of KSA. And we describe mathematical topics, problems, and results which are received by students of KSA in the process of R&E(project No.7).

Communications of Mathematical Education, volume 20, issue 1, 2006, Pages 33~59
This study is intended to reconsider the meaning of the education for gifted/talented children, the foundation object of science high school by examining the behavior characteristics between gifted students and talented students in open-end mathematical problem solving and to provide the basis for realization of 'meaningful teaming' tailored to the learner's level, the essential of school education. For the study, 8 students (4 gifted students and 4 talented students) were selected out of the 1 st grade students in science high school through the distinction procedure of 3 steps and the behavior characteristics between these two groups were analyzed according to the basis established through the literature survey. As the results of this study, the following were founded. (1) It must be recognized that the constituent members of science high school were not the same excellent group and divided into the two groups, gifted students who showed excellence in overall field of mathematical behavior characteristics and talented students who had excellence in learning ability of mathematics. (2) The behavior characteristics between gifted students and talented students, members of science high school is understood and a curriculum of science high school must include a lesson for improving the creativity as the educational institutions for gifted/talented students, unlike general high school. Based on these results, it is necessary to try to find a support plan that it reduces the case which gifted students are generalized with common talented students by the same curriculum and induces the meaningful loaming to learners, the essential of school education.

Studying functions is the fundamental that makes people understand complicate social events by using mathematical symbol system. But there are not enough program design and Teaching-learning strategy for mathematical-gifted student. So this research aim to design education program and teaching-learning strategy in functions area for mathematical-gifted student. 1 use real life-related problems to make students develop their problem-solving skill. And in this research I encourage students to study functions by grouping, discussion and presentation for self-directed teaming.
Study on the revision of mathematics curriculum of Korea Science Academy

Communications of Mathematical Education, volume 20, issue 1, 2006, Pages 75~86
This study is partially supported Korea Science Foundation. In this paper we will introduce the result of project to revise mathematics curriculum of Korea Science Academy, and we will discuss the management of mathematics curriculum of Korea Science Academy. This study also analyze the pattern of taking mathematics course during year 2005. From this analyzing result, we will discuss about the development of mathematics curriculum of Korea Science Academy.
A Study on the gifted classes model using deepening questions
Bang Seung-Jin ; Choi Jung-Oh ;
Communications of Mathematical Education, volume 20, issue 1, 2006, Pages 87~101
Gifted students in elementary, middle and high schools require a specialized curriculum to foster their mathematically gifted natures. Questions that stimulate the teacher's intellectual curiosity, student reactions and methods pertaining to content organization and problem formation are the main foci.
A Study on the mathematics AS program
Bang Seung-Jin ; Choi Jung-Oh ;
Communications of Mathematical Education, volume 20, issue 1, 2006, Pages 103~115
We integrated and utilized the currently existing international AP(Advanced Placement) program in mathematics. In 2005, the KMEHRD(Korean Ministry of Education and Human Resources Development) began the mathematics AP program; we attempt to maximize its effectiveness through continuous development. In boosting educational excellence, our AP program will affect the intellectual desire and enhance the performance of mathematically gifted leaners. This program assists high school students to achieve their fullest potential.
A Case Study on Instruction for Mathematically Gifted Children through The Application of Open-ended Problem Solving Tasks

Communications of Mathematical Education, volume 20, issue 1, 2006, Pages 117~145
Mathematically gifted children have creative curiosity about novel tasks deriving from their natural mathematical talents, aptitudes, intellectual abilities and creativities. More effect in nurturing the creative thinking found in brilliant children, letting them approach problem solving in various ways and make strategic attempts is needed. Given this perspective, it is desirable to select open-ended and atypical problems as a task for educational program for gifted children. In this paper, various types of open-ended problems were framed and based on these, teaming activities were adapted into gifted children's class. Then in the problem solving process, the characteristic of bright children's mathematical thinking ability and examples of problem solving strategies were analyzed so that suggestions about classes for bright children utilizing open-ended tasks at elementary schools could be achieved. For this, an open-ended task made of 24 inquiries was structured, the teaching procedure was made of three steps properly transforming Renzulli's Enrichment Triad Model, and 24 periods of classes were progressed according to the teaching plan. One period of class for each subcategories of mathematical thinking ability; ability of intuitional insight, systematizing information, space formation/visualization, mathematical abstraction, mathematical reasoning, and reflective thinking were chosen and analyzed regarding teaching, teaming process and products. Problem solving examples that could be anticipated through teaching and teaming process and products analysis, and creative problem solving examples were suggested, and suggestions about teaching bright children using open-ended tasks were deduced based on the analysis of the characteristic of tasks, role of the teacher, impartiality and probability of approaching through reflecting the classes. Through the case study of a mathematics class for bright children making use of open-ended tasks proved to satisfy the curiosity of the students, and was proved to be effective for providing and forming a habit of various mathematical thinking experiences by establishing atypical mathematical problem solving strategies. This study is meaningful in that it provided mathematically gifted children's problem solving procedures about open-ended problems and it made an attempt at concrete and practical case study about classes fur gifted children while most of studies on education for gifted children in this country focus on the studies on basic theories or quantitative studies.
