The design of developing the algebraic symbols and the equal sign concept in mathematics textbooks from 1ST to 9TH Grade

By 李宜蓉 and YI-JUNG LEE

Abstract

[[abstract]]The purpose of this study is to analyze the design of developing the algebraic symbols and the equal sign concept in mathematics textbooks from 1st to 9th Grade. The theoretical model in my thesis is based on Ausubel’s(1963)meaningful learning theory and K?chemann’s (1981) Children’s interpretations of the letters. The objects of study include three editions mathematics textbooks which were adopted the examination of National Institute for Compilation and Translation, and the contents of these textbooks are analyzed by the content analysis method. The thesis investigates four aspects. The result of this study includes: (1) On the contents design of developing the algebraic symbols and the equal sign concept, the differences among these editions are the amount of examples and the introduced timing. (2) On the expression of generic examples of the algebraic symbols and the equal sign concept, the differences among these editions are the example posing way and the description. (3) On the design of prior knowledge of the algebraic symbols and the equal sign concept, the differences among these editions are arrangement and expression. (4) On the correspondence between the designed order of the algebraic symbols and the algebraic competence indicators, some parts did not correspond with the indicators. At last, there are some suggestion about the results of study and methodology for the future study.
