Abstract/Notes: The children with mental retardation also need to obtain the basic math capabilities in order to lead an independent life as a social member. The number concepts make the foundation of both math and social life, which is why mentally retarded children should learn about the number concepts and basic computations. Montessori mathematics education not only offers great teaching methods to increase the learning effect in numbers of mentally retarded children, but also induces interest from them through diverse number materials. Thus this study set out to investigate the effects of the Montessori mathematics education by comparing the degree of number concepts between the experiment group that had the Montessori mathematics education program applied and the control group that followed the general number curriculum. Those students who didn't have number concepts formed yet made the subjects among the students attending the elementary schools in two administrative districts of Gyeongsangnam Province and receiving special education. 20 of them made the experiment group, while the rest 19 the control group. The former group participated in the Montessori mathematics education program five times a week (a session lasted 40 minutes) for 12 weeks. The effects of the treatment were examined with the tool devised by Fischer(1988) and translated by Jo Eun-yeong (1993). The collected data were analyzed with t-test. The findings of the research were summarized as follows: After the Montessori mathematics education program was applied to the experiment group, there were significant differences in the achievement of number concepts between the group and the control group that didn't receive the program. Those mentally retarded children who had the Montessori mathematics education scored higher points than those who didn't in all the nine subelements of number concepts, which were mechanical counting, rational counting, cardinal numbers, instant recognizing, one on one correspondence, number preservation, non-equivalence, ordinal numbers, and parts-the whole-parts. Thus the Montessori mathematics education program will be of great help when applied to the number concept education for the mentally retarded. / 이 연구는 몬테소리 수 교육프로그램이 정신지체아의 수 개념 형성에 미치는지 효과를 알아보기 위해 수행되었다. 몬테소리 수교육은 체계적이고 과학적이며 구체적인 방법에 의해 이루어지므로 정신지체아들의 흥미를 쉽게 유발시키고 효과적인 학습을 기대할 수 있다. 수개념은 Fischer(1988)의 수개념 검사 도구의 하위 영역인 기계적 세기, 합리적 세기, 기수, 즉시 인식하기, 1:1 대응, 수 보존, 비등치, 서수, 부분-부분-전체 개념의 9가지 항목으로 설정하였다. 연구의 대상은 경상남도의 G군과 H군의 초등학교의 특수학급에 재학 중인 아동(G군의 7개교 9학급의 62명, H군의 6개교 8학급의 43명)중에서 수 개념을 공부하고 있는 정신지체아동 43명을 각 학교의 특수교사로부터 추천을 받았다. 수 개념의 정도를 알아보기 위하여 기계적인 수세기를 하여 20 이상을 세는 아동은 제외하고 실험집단 20명과 비교집단 19명으로 하였다. 몬테소리 수 교육이 정신지체아의 수 개념 발달에 미치는 효과를 구명하기 위한 것으로 몬테소리 수 교육 프로그램을 실시하고 개별적으로 사전, 사후 검사를 실하여 그 효과를 분석하였다. 이러한 연구결과를 일반화 하는 문제가 논의되었다.

Abstract/Notes: This study aims to examine relationship between early childhood pre-service teachers' early childhood mathematical content knowledge and mathematics teaching efficacy. This study's subjects are 73 early childhood pre-service teachers from two four-year universities, A and B, situated in Daejeon Metropolitan City. Their mathematical content knowledge and mathematics teaching efficacy were analysed using a concept map and a questionnaire, respectively. The results are as follows. First, there was static correlation between early childhood pre-service teachers' early childhood mathematical content knowledge and mathematics teaching efficacy. Second, relationship between early childhood pre-service teachers' early childhood mathematical content knowledge and outcome expectation was not statistically significant. Third, there was static correlation between early childhood pre-service teachers' early childhood mathematical content knowledge and efficacy expectation. The above results mean that pre-service teachers' good learning of a specific subject's content knowledge leads to their excellent teaching, and therefore good learning of content knowledge is crucial. / 본 연구의 목적은 예비유아교사들의 유아수학교육내용 지식과 수학적 교수효능감과의 관계를 알아보는 것이다. 본 연구의 대상은 대전광역시에 위치한 4년제 A, B 대학 예비유아교사 73명이다. 유아수학내용지식은 개념도를 통해, 수학적 교수효능감은 질문지를 통해 분석하였다. 연구결과, 첫째, 예비유아교사의 유아수학교육내용 지식과 수학적 교수효능감과는 정적인 상관이 있었다. 둘째, 예비유아교사의 유아수학교육내용 지식과 수학적 교수 효능감 중 결과기대 효능감과의 관계는 통계적으로 유의미하지 않았다. 셋째, 예비유아교사의 유아수학교육내용 지식과 수학 교수 능력신념 효능감과는 정적인 상관이 있었다. 이와 같은 결과는 과목 내용지식을 잘 배우면 앞으로 잘 가르칠 수 있게 된다고 볼 수 있기 때문에 내용지식을 잘 배우는 것은 매우 중요하다고 할 수 있다.

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of young children's team centered problem-based learning strategies(team centered PBL) on the self-efficacy and academic interests in young children's mathematics. For these purposes, the data were collected by questionnaire from 27 young children living in S-city. They were respectively assigned to experimental group and comparative group. The experimental group was trained four weeks with the 12th sessions through the team centered PBL. Before administrating the experimental procedure, both groups took the pretest for measuring their self-efficacy and academic interests. After the experimental sessions, they also took the posttests to measure both of them. The major results of this study were as follows: First, the experimental group trained through the team centered PBL strategies has got higher scores on the self-efficacy questionnaire than the comparative group. Second, the former which got higher scores on the self-efficacy also gained more scores on academic interests test than the latter. In light of these results, it suggests that young children's self-efficacy in the kindergarten could be acquired through team centered PBL strategies. / 본 연구의 목적은 유아 수학에 대한 모둠별 문제중심 학습전략이 유아의 자기효능감과 학습흥미에 어떤 영향을 미치는지를 밝혀내는 것이다. 이를 수행하기 위해 경기도 S시 소재의 H유치원만 5세반 실험집단 14명에게 4주 동안 총 12차시에 걸쳐 유아 수학 관련 모둠별 문제중심 학습전략을 실시하였다. 모둠별 문제중심 학습전략이 종료된 후에 유아 수학 관련 자기효능감검사와 학습흥미검사의 결과를 비교집단 13명의 결과와 비교 분석하였다. 본 연구에서 밝혀진 주요 결과로는 첫째, 모둠별 문제중심 학습전략을 받은 실험집단이 그렇지 않은 비교집단보다 유아 수학에 대한 자기효능감 점수가 유의미하게 높았다. 둘째, 모둠별 문제중심 학습전략으로 자기효능감이 높아진 실험집단이 그렇지 않은 비교집단보다 유아 수학에 대한 학습흥미에서도 유의미하게 높았다. 이 같은 연구결과는 수업시간에 유아들에게 수학 관련 모둠별 문제중심 학습전략이 제공될 경우, 유아들의 수학 관련 자기효능감과 학습흥미가 향상될 수 있음을 의미한다. 따라서 유아들의 수학 관련 자기효능감과 학습흥미 향상을 위해 모둠별 문제중심 학습전략을 적용해 볼 필요성이 있을 것이다.

Abstract/Notes: Froebel and Montessori are compared in their approaches for teaching preschool children the concept of number, numerical calculation, vulgar fraction and geometrical concepts. Froebel's approach is largely metaphysical whereas Montessori's is largely sensorial. But their approaches are not diametrically opposed to each other but rather cmoplementary to each other from the educational view point. Their different claims or views should be closely studied and objectively evaluated through various experiments, before any of them are seriously incorporated in our educational practices.

Abstract/Notes: Research suggests that math anxiety correlates directly with individuals' views of mathematicsrelated experiences. Research also suggests that math anxiety may begin in early elementary grades and remain into adulthood. This study examined how teachers' experiences, perceptions, and mathematics confidence levels influence mathematics instruction. To understand teachers' perceptions of mathematics, the researcher used a qualitative phenomenological approach to probe into their earliest memories of mathematics before entering school and their experiences during formal education. Seven 5th-grade teachers with two to fourteen years of experience agreed to participate in the study. The participants responded to ten open-ended questions focused on mathematics instruction and seven interview questions examining participants' experiences with mathematics. The researcher also observed mathematics instruction in each teacher's classroom. The results indicated that teachers recalled fond early memories of mathematics and felt reasonably confident about their math instruction. Some teachers struggled with mathematics as elementary students, while others excelled. The majority of participants completed the basic requirements for mathematics in high school. Most teachers did not engage in a mathematics methods course focused on standards-based elementary mathematics. Teachers' weak areas in mathematics corresponded with similar studies regarding complex mathematics topics. Several key components of mathematics instruction were absent during observations. Future research may need to increase the number of observations and the sample size.
