Educational Technology & Society, v20 n2 p89-100 2017
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of the flipped classroom approach designed by using Khan Academy and free open source software on students' academic achievement and to examine students' views about this approach. The research was evaluated in the light of both qualitative and quantitative data. Twenty-eight students studying in the department of mathematics education in a state university in Turkey comprised the study group of the research which was conducted using a mixed methods research design. A double integral achievement test and an open-ended questionnaire about the flipped classroom approach were used as data collection tools. A Wilcoxon signed-rank test was used for the analysis of quantitative data and content analysis was used to analyse the qualitative data. According to the analysis of the research it was found that the flipped classroom approach designed with using both the Khan Academy and mathematics software increased student achievement in double integral. It was also found that this learning approach enhanced students' understanding and provided visualization in mathematics teaching. Moreover, it was revealed that this approach promoted retention and made understanding much easier.
