EXAMINATION THE HORIZONTAL MATHEMATIZATION PROCESSES OF SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS ACCORDING TO THE REALISTIC MATHEMATİC EDUCATION: THE EXAMPLE OF PROBABILITY SUBJECT

Süha YILMAZ, Bahar DİNÇER

Abstract


The purpose of this study is to examine the horizontal mathematization processes of secondary school 8th grade students with an activity on the topic of probability in the theoretical umbrella of Realistic Mathematics Education. This study is qualitative in nature. In order to attract the attention of students, a story was arranged by the researchers. According to the results, the students were generally successful in the horizontal mathematization process. In addition, students appear to be more successful at “solving a problem situated in daily life”, which requires them to make mathematical interpretations; this supports the viewpoint that the success of students increase when relations are established with everyday life situations, as claimed by the reality principle in realistic mathematics teaching.

Key words: Realistic Mathematics, horizontal mathematization,mathematic education
