TEACHERS' PEDAGOGICAL BELIEFS IN DEVELOPING STUDENTS' MISCONCEPTIONS IN ALGEBRA

This paper elucidates the misconceptions developed by middle school students in the teaching and learning of algebraic concepts such as variables, algebraic expressions, and algebraic equations that are affected by teachers’ pedagogical beliefs. This study of literature is conducted to obtain more detailed and comprehensive knowledge of some common misconceptions that students face and the possible causes of those misconceptions. The paper unfolds some common misconceptions that arise while learning the algebraic concepts, few of them are variables, equality/inequality, bracket, an order of operations, fractions, algebraic expressions, and algebraic equations. Also, the paper divulges the effect of the role of the teacher and its pedagogy adopted to teach algebraic concepts. It appears that larger number of misconceptions arise among the students in mathematics classroom where teachers believe that pedagogy should be teacher-centered (Instructive) and adopted the methods that dominate teacher-centered approach, in contrast, the number of misconceptions is lower where teachers believe the pedagogy should be student-centered (Constructive) and adopted the methods that dominate the student-centered approach.

MATHEMATICAL WRITING ERRORS AMONG STUDENTS

 

Pieces of evidence show that humans started writing mathematics around 3000 BC. However, very little attention is given to formal mathematics writing—few researchers given their attention to mathematical writing errors. Errors are essential because they are occurred due to a lack of knowledge. In this paper, the importance of mathematical writing and mathematical writing errors among students is presented. Although not enough work is done in both the fields, some studies prove that mathematical writing errors impact the learners’ ability to learn further mathematics.

EFFECTIVENESS OF TEACHING GEOMETRY THROUGH E-LEARNING

A classroom that is ICT enabled is said to be an effective classroom in teaching and learning process. In many researches it is found that student learn and understand better when they are taught through ICT equipment‟s and for teachers also it becomes easy to teach abstract concepts to primary as well as senior secondary classes and specially a subject like mathematics, since in mathematics many concepts are abstract and to learn them becomes hard for students specially geometry. According to Van Hiele theory there are levels of understanding geometry such as visual, Descriptive/Analytic, Abstract/Relational, Formal Deduction, Rigor/Meta-mathematical the learners learn geometry through these levels. The textbook‟s of mathematics only focuses on calculating and using formulas and not enough on analyzing and investigating figures. Presently many developed countries teach geometry through e-learning software‟s such as Geogebra, Desmos, Geometer‟s Sketch pad, Maxima, Matlab, Mathematica, in which dynamic worksheets are also available for learners. This paper emphasizes the effectiveness of teaching geometry with the help of e-learning through a comparison between conventional and ICT embedded mathematics classroom. This will be conducted through an experiment on secondary grade students of grade VIII on learning quadrilaterals.

STUDYING CLASSROOM INTERACTIONS IN GOVERNMENT SCHOOL OF DELHI USING FLANDERS’S INTERACTION ANALYSIS

Education can be seen as a set of activities that the teacher and the learner participates in through interactions. In the daily classroom interactions takes place and is the reason that teacher is able to share his knowledge regarding the subject. This interaction is usually used to direct their ideas together. This learning and teaching process is important for generations to survive as the foundations of our future are laid down by the education we provide to our young ones. But due to the conventional learning practices taking place and lack of new techniques of teaching and learning, we are at the risk of providing our future generation with poor mathematical aptitude and base. This paper reports on a study of classroom interaction and discourse in a government school of Delhi, India. Delhi being the capital of our country, if shows ways to better learning outcomes among mathematics students, can set an example for others to lead on to. In this study a classroom interaction is studied from the mathematics classroom of government school of Delhi. The research was carried out to get a look into the classroom interactions and understand them better in order to find solutions of proper teaching techniques to improve learning.

DEVELOPING SEQUENTIAL-CONTINUUM PROJECTS ON NUMBER SYSTEM FOR MATH STUDENTS UPTO SECONDARY LEVEL

Number system is the foundation stone of school mathematics. Children learn different kinds of number in different grades without using any reference of numbers learned in previous grades. For strong foundation of numbers as a system it is important that children learn various kinds of numbers in relation to each other, extending the already learned concepts with the new family of numbers. Besides hierarchy, sequencing and continuity must also be maintained when it comes to teaching and learning of number concepts. For strong foundation of numbers as a system it is important that children learn various kinds of numbers in relation to each other, extending the already learned concepts with the new family of numbers. The research focused on the very nature of sequential and continuous order of mathematical concepts present in math curriculum from primary to secondary grade. An attempt was done to develop sequence of interrelated math concepts on the hierarchy of continuum. An exemplar module and conceptual framework on number system was developed based on sequential continuum principle of mathematics. The study attempted to develop projects on number system from grade three to grade ten in proper sequence and maintaining continuity as well. Nature of projects was based on hands on activities and investigatory real-life problems. The study formulated conceptual framework which brings light to the need of such projects in school curriculum.
