SYSTEM-ACTING APPROACH FOR DEVELOPMENT OF MATHEMATICAL COMPETENCIES RELATED TO THE VALUE ”MASS” IN THE EDUCATION IN MATHEMATICS FOR GRADES 1-4
Maria Petrova Temnikova
Abstract. The development of knowledge, skills and competences related to values and their measuring units represents an important part of the overall education in mathematics for primary school students in Grades 1-4.
The research studies different theoretical concepts related to the competences and the approaches in the primary school education. Based on the analysis of the respective legislation the researcher presents interconnections between the specific mathematical competences and the term “mass” from the competency cluster “Measurement”.
The newly developed methodology system of work for learning the term “Mass” is applied during both the mandatory and the additional mathematics classes in Grades 1-4. Different approaches for education are simultaneously applied but priority is given to the system-acting approach with the idea to achieve unification between the act of teaching and the control of the cognitive and practical productive activities of the students.
As a result of applying the newly developed methodology system of work the students actively participate in the pedagogy interrelations and co-operation with the rest of the students, they have the opportunity to express their own intellectual and emotional potential. When the students make mistakes, during the practical individual, team and group activities they get the opportunity to correct these mistakes and to develop their own logical thinking.
