An Educational Program of Mathematical Creativity
Petrovici, Constantin; Havârneanu, Geanina
Acta Didactica Napocensia, v8 n1 p13-18 2015
In this article we intend to analyze the effectiveness of an educational program of mathematical creativity, designed for learners aged 10 to 12 years, which has been implemented in an urban school of Iasi, Romania. This analysis has both a psycho-educational dimension and a statistical analysis one. The psycho-educational dimension refers to the coordinates of such a program: the curriculum vision and the teleological configuration, the structure, the teaching and assessment strategies applied in this program. The statistical analysis dimension refers to the evaluation of the performance and effectiveness of this program in terms of fluency, flexibility, originality, elaboration and sensitivity to problems, the five qualities of creative thinking. This evaluation will be performed using the SPSS on the results of two mathematical creativity tests administered to an experimental group before and after the implementation of the program. Our intention is to prove, using the SPSS statistical interpretation, that such education programs of mathematical creativity, despite their difficulties, may become a rich resource in the innovation of creative teaching, which can be exploited by the teachers to improve their didactic performance.
