Abstract

Araştırmanın amacı, okul öncesi dönemde işbirlikli öğrenme ile bütünleştirilmiş Montessori Metodu'nun matematiksel muhakeme becerileri üzerindeki etkisini araştırmaktır. Çalışma grubu, deney grubunda 15, kontrol grubunda 15 olmak üzere toplam 30 çocuktan oluşmaktadır. Çalışma, deney grubunda işbirlikli öğrenme etkinlikleriyle bütünleştirilmiş Montessori Yöntemi destekli matematik öğretimi, kontrol grubunda ise MEB Okul Öncesi Öğretim Programı (2013) destekli matematik öğretimi ile yürütülmüştür. Veri toplama aracı olarak “Erken Matematiksel Akıl Yürütme Becerileri Değerlendirme Aracı” kullanılmış, veriler cinsiyet ve akıl yürütme değişkenleri doğrultusunda Mann-Whitney U Testi ile analiz edilmiştir. İşbirlikli öğrenme ile bütünleştirilmiş Montessori Yöntemi ile desteklenmiş Matematik dersi alan deney grubu öğrencileri ile MEB Okul Öncesi Öğretim Programı (2013) destekli Matematik dersi alan kontrol grubu öğrencilerinin performansları karşılaştırıldığında, deney grubu lehine anlamlı bir fark bulunmuştur. grup belirlendi. Ancak deney ve kontrol grubu öğrencilerinin muhakeme becerilerinde cinsiyete göre anlamlı bir farklılık saptanmamıştır.
