Abstract

While serving in the field of practice, teachers have continued to hold to the view that research is an activity carried out by professional researchers based outside the basic schools. This is because traditionally, class teachers have never been expected to comment on the theory and practice of their work. However, recent push by the Teacher Research movement across the globe has emphasized teacher research as a process in which educators note problems in the context of their own schools and classrooms and propose investigative methods appropriate to address the problems. On this premise, this review first considers the ramification of mathematics teacher research in improving professionalism in the teaching and learning of mathematics. Secondly, teacher professionalism in mathematics education was given a detailed coverage. Thirdly, the task of mathematics teachers as researchers was considered. The role of higher education in nurturing fruitful collaborations with basic schools was discussed along with the implications of mathematics teacher research for classroom practice in Nigeria.

Abstract

Mathematical modeling appears today as a dynamic tool for teaching and learning mathematics, because it connects mathematics with real world applications thus increasing the student interest on the subject. In the present paper a method is developed that uses grey numbers for evaluating student mathematical modeling capacities and a classroom application is presented illustrating it. This new assessment method is useful in particular when the student performance is evaluated with linguistic characterizations (grades) and not with numerical scores, which makes non feasible the calculation of the mean value of those grades. Grey numbers are indeterminate numbers which are defined with the help of the real intervals and they have found nowadays many applications in real life, science and engineering for handling approximate data.

Abstract

This research development aimed to develop of worksheet based on guided discovery for increasing mathematical creative thinking and student’s self-efficacy. Development stage in this study is a preliminary study, planning, development of worksheet, worksheet validation, and field testing. The subject of this research is the students of class 10A3 and 10A5 MAN 1 Central Lampung in the Academic of 2017/2018. The data of this research were obtained by observation, interview, mathematicalcreative thinking ability test and self-efficacy scale. The result of the validity by subject matter expert and media expert showed that the worksheet is considered excellent. The Initial field testing results indicate that worksheet is included in either category. The field testing results showed that (1) the student’s mathematical creative thinking aspect was effective because seen from the N-Gain of 0,54 which included in the category of moderate improvement and (2) the student’s self-efficacy was effective because seen from the N-Gain of 0,36 which included in the category of moderate improvement. It can be concluded that worksheet based on guided discovery effective way to improve the mathematical creative thinking ability and student’s self-efficacy.

Abstract

The aims of this research are to know the use of the undo process method in the completion of the inverse function. This type of research is a quasi-experiment. The group used in this study consisted of two groups. One group as a control group uses conventional learning methods that use the conventional inverse method of solving conventional function, and one group as an experimental group which in learning use undo process method in solving inverse function. This research was conducted at SMA Negeri 1 Buntu Pane, Asahan Regency, North Sumatra province, Indonesia. The population of this study is the students of class XI IA in the academic year 2016/2017 even semester. The sample was obtained by using cluster random sampling method. The study sample is two classes of 5 existing classes. Implementation of this research by using the undo process method to student ability to solve the problem given. The technique of collecting data using test and questionnaire given to student which become sample. Research data show that by applying this method of learning can improve self-efficacy in the following material about inverse function.

Abstract

This study aims to describe the effect of discovery learning model using sunflowers in circles on mathematics learning outcomes of grade VIII Junior High School Number (SMPN) 1 Pagaralam. The methods used in this study is descriptive method quantitative pretest-posttest design with control group design. The population in this study is the entire class VIII students of Junior High School Number (SMPN) 1 Pagaralam that amounted to 270 students with samples at 60 students. Data collection was taken by way of documentation and test be reserved in the form of the essay. The test was analyzed by documentation photograph and statistician with compare data result class experiment and class control, with the significance level of 5%. The result found in the discovery learning approach using sunflowers give good effect the result of learning, this is average experiment class is better than with control class.

Abstract

The educational implementation is a learning process at all levels, students are required to follow certain lectures, including mathematics courses. Learning difficulties are a barrier to learning where children are not well educated, due to disturbances, both from student factors and external factors. learning, thus students are expected to catch up because of these obstacles. This research is classified into qualitative descriptive research that seeks to describe the analysis of student learning difficulties in statistical subjects. The subjects in this study were the fourth-semester students of 2018/2019 Mulawarman University. Research reveals things that are considered as a barrier factor for students in Statistics. In this study, the researcher collected information through documentation, tests, and interviews with students. The results of the analysis show that the difficulties of students in studying Statistics basically lie in the weakness of the concept. The results of the research conducted by the researcher were the existence of errors in process skills, errors in understanding questions, and errors in using notation. The solution to overcoming these problems is: for the eye teacher of Statistics to be able to develop learning strategies so that students can be more honed in their thinking skills and provide continuous problem training to students.
