Abstract

The aim of this study is to evaluate the suitability of the mathematical modeling activities created and solved by mathematics teachers. The activities created are examined according to modeling principles and their solutions are investigated according to solution steps, and the data obtained is analyzed and reported. About 9 hours of theoretical mathematical modeling activities was given to 17 mathematics teachers who participated in the study. Then at the end of five weeks asked them to create a mathematical modeling activity. Using a method of case study, the study highlighted the short-comings of the teachers with regards to "structure documentation" and "model generalization" which are essential features of the activity. To understand the nature of the mathematical modeling activity a long-term project, workshop and in-service training activities are recommended to the teachers in order to earn more experience in the process of creating a mathematical modeling activity. So, it can be ensured that teachers gain more experience in the process of preparing and applying activities.

Abstract

Bu araştırmada, matematik öğretmenleri tarafından oluşturulan ve çözümü yapılan matematiksel modelleme etkinliklerinin, uygunluğunun incelenmesi amaçlanmıştır. Oluşturulan etkinlikler model oluşturma prensiplerine göre değerlendirilmiş; yapılan çözümler ise modeli çözme basamaklarına göre incelenmiş ve veriler analiz edilerek raporlaştırılmıştır. Araştırmaya katılan toplam 17 matematik öğretmenine, üç haftası günde 3 saat olmak üzere 9 saat matematiksel modelleme etkinliklerine yönelik teorik bilgi içeren; toplam beş hafta matematiksel modelleme eğitimi verilmiş ve çalışma sonunda her birinden birer matematiksel modelleme etkinliği oluşturmaları istenmiştir. Özel durum çalışması yönteminin uygulandığı bu çalışmanın sonucunda, bir etkinlikte bulunması gereken özelliklerden “yapı belgelendirme” ve “model genelleme” prensipleri konusunda öğretmenlerdeki eksiklik göze çarpmaktadır. Matematiksel model etkinliği oluşturma sürecinde daha fazla deneyime sahip olmaları adına, uzun süreli bir proje, çalıştay ve hizmet içi seminerler verilerek matematiksel modelleme etkinliğinin doğasının anlatılması önerilmektedir. Bu sayede öğretmenlerin etkinlik hazırlama ve uygulama süreçlerine yönelik daha fazla tecrübe kazanmaları sağlanabilir.
