A Comparative Study on Math's Education Rendered in the Two Communities on the Island of Cyprus
Hadjichristou, Chrysoula
International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, v2 n2 p44-47 Apr 2007
The island of Cyprus embodies two distinct communities having their own systems of education. On the road to EU certain parallelisms need to be set as it is the goal of this study on math's education. This paper will concentrate on K1-K12 math's education. The topics to be dealt with will cover math's curriculum at all levels; weekly distribution of math classes, as well as their proportion to the other courses offered. Students are expected to be more creative in class rather than resorting to rote learning even in math education. The study will also try to shed light on class size. Finally the math teachers and their educational background will be looked into so as to check into their prior math knowledge. The main goal is to bring about the similarities and differences and to come up with the standards of EU as well. (Contains 6 tables.)
