Abstract


Language is an important element of Maths. One of the common problems that we encounter especially in the process of solving operations can be based on misunderstanding the question. This situation makes us think how Turkish skills, we need to use in mathematical operations, assists our process of solving problems. The aim of this study is to examine the effects of Turkish-Maths unity in the process of solving problem on 8th grades in primary schools. While reading, writing, listening and speaking skills are examined in Turkish part, process of solving operations are examined in maths part. It is thought failure especially in the process of solving verbal operations results from that students could not understand what they read, write, express or form a diagram. Illustration of our study includes 100 8th grades students in primary school in Beylikdüzü/İstanbul. We have carried out a test to these students including 20 questions that evaluates Turkish-Maths unity. Reading, listening, writing and speaking; Turkish skills assessment forms are evaluated with the help of Turkish teachers.
