We had a full scale of literature survey and case survey of mathematics Flipped Learning class models. The purpose of this study is to design and adopt a Flipped Learning 'Linear Algebra' class model that fis our need. We applied our new model to 30 students at S University. Then we analyzed the activities and performance of students in this course. Our Flipped Learning 'Linear Algebra' teaching model is followed in 3 stages : The first stage involved the students viewing an online lecture as homework and participating free question-answer by themselves on Q&A before class, the second stage involved in-class learning which researcher solved the students' Q&A and highlighted the main ideas through the Point-Lecture, the third stage involved the students participating more advanced topic by themselves on Q&A and researcher (or peers) finalizing students' Q&A. According to the survey, the teaching model made a certain contribution not only to increase students' participation and interest, but also to improve their communication skill and self-directed learning skill in all classes and online. We used the Purposive Sampling from the obtained data. For the research's validity and reliability, we used the Content Validity and the Alternate-Form Method. We found several meaningful output from this analysis.
An Analysis of Generalization Class using GSP for the 8th Grade Students in a Math Gifted Class - Focused on Viviani theorem -

This study is aimed to implement a preferred generalization classes for gifted students. By designing and applying the generalization lesson using GSP, we tried to investigate the characteristics on the class. To do this, we designed a lesson on generalization of Viviani theorem and applied to 13 8th grade students in a math gifted class. As results, we could extract five subjects as followings; mediating the conjecture by GSP and checking the pattern, misunderstanding the confirm by GSP as a proof and its overcoming, digressing from the topic and cognitive gap, completing the proof by incomplete conjecture, gap between the generalization and understanding generality. Based on this subjects, we discussed the educational implications in order to help implement a preferred generalization classes for gifted students.
Comparison of the Effects on Teaching Calculus for Engineering Students
Kim, Sung-Ock ;

The purpose of this paper is to compare the effects on the students' academic achievement and satisfaction level in a Calculus course taught by two different teaching modes, blended learning and face-to-face learning. The comparison analysis was made for Calculus 2 course in H university in South Korea offered in the Spring semester of the year 2015. Calculus 2 is a Calculus course designed for the first year students who plan to choose their majors in Engineering. There were two sections of the Calculus course taught in a blended learning mode and one in a conventional face-to-face learning mode. All these three sections including e-learning parts were taught by the author. We discuss some meaningful differences in the effects by the two different teaching modes.

Correcting an imbalance between cognitive and affective aspects of mathematics in schools is recognized as a crucial issue with regards to mathematics education in Korea. Therefore, research and studies about affective aspects have been increasing and themes relating to affective aspects were diverse. Their theme included the improvement of affective aspect, investigation of factors of affective aspect, and development of measurement tools for affective aspect. The purpose of this study is to analyze and organize the research that has been done with respect to affective aspect and drive trend, implication, and their instruction to mathematics education. This study has investigated 103 studies released from 2005 to 2015 on KCI, Korea Citation Index. The results of this study are as follow. First, since released research of affective aspects in mathematics has not increased in number in the last 11 years, academic interest in the affective aspects seems lower than recent interest arousing in Korea. Second, most studies utilized quantitative research as a tool to analyze phenomena and the cause and effect of affective aspects. Third, middle school students were the most common subjects of the studies, followed by elementary school students. Fourth, the studies had various themes such as analyzing the cause and effect of affective aspect, recognizing changes of affective aspects, and measuring affective aspects. The studies, especially, focused most on analyzing how to improve affective aspects by applying it to programs such as mathematic activities and solving mathematic problems. It is necessary for future research to have a long-term perspective and to provide a space for communication. Research should not only focus on how recognize affective aspects differently, which is based on its cultural background, but also to draw affective solutions from them.
Affordance Planning Strategy for Mathematics App development for Senior citizen using Smart-devices
Ko, Ho Kyoung ;
Communications of Mathematical Education, volume 30, issue 1, 2016, Pages 85~99

The research was carried out to be part of a mathematics app stimulation that enables the elderly to learn mathematics by using Smart devices. Particularly appropriate method / function that leads to learning is very important for people who are not accustomed to Smart devices like the elderly. The research was conducted to build affordance strategy based on the consideration of characteristics of senior learners. It aims to achieve both the goals of education through mathematics learning materials provided by smart devices and also to improve user convenience. It suggests cognitive, physical and sensory features and factors to improve affordance of Smart learning system.
A study on pre-service mathematics teachers' MKT

DOI : 10.7468/jksmee.2016.30.1.101
The purposes of the study were to analyze pre-service mathematics teachers' MKT and to examine the perceptions of MKT to find implications for the improvement of pre-service mathematics teacher education program in the aspect of teachers' content knowledge. Twenty-six pre-service mathematics teachers participated in the survey to examine the perceptions of MKT and they also finished two MKT tasks which focused on a specific area of middle school geometry. According to the survey results, the participants thought that they have enough knowledge in all categories of MKT except KCT-2 and they appreciated the importance of MKT education in pre-service mathematics teacher education program. However, the participants showed difficulties in MKT task items which required SCK, KCS, KCT, especially, the proportions of those who showed appropriate knowledge on the items required SCK and KCT was less than 50%. These results show disagreement between the perceptions of pre-service mathematics teachers' MKT and practice of MKT.
