Preferences of Teaching Methods and Techniques in Mathematics with Reasons
√únal, Menderes
Universal Journal of Educational Research, v5 n2 p194-202 2017
In this descriptive study, the goal was to determine teachers' preferred pedagogical methods and techniques in mathematics. Qualitative research methods were employed, primarily case studies. 40 teachers were randomly chosen from various secondary schools in Kirsehir during the 2015-2016 educational terms, and data were gathered via semi-structured interviews. While analyzing the data, a categorical descriptive analysis technique was employed in which participants' opinions were divided into categories and sub-categories, and quotations were included to ensure opinions were reflected accurately. Results of these interviews showed that teachers preferred techniques such as "Question and Answer" and "Demonstration," that offered relative ease of use. Techniques such as "Scenario" and "Case Study" had fallen out of favor, as they required greater preparation and use of educational materials.
