Efficacy of Constructivist Approach in Facilitating Learning Addition of Fraction
D Packiam, M Parimala Fathima
This paper is outlines of an experimental study on students’ learning in constructivist approach and its effect on achievement in mathematics at primary level. Classroom teaching practice becomes more effective, when it is well informed by an understanding of how students’ learn and learning will be more successful if students are given the opportunity to explain or clarify their ideas. So in terms of approach, the development of education now requires teaching strategies that emphasize student involvement in their learning, where focus is on knowledge construction rather knowledge transformation. Constructivism is an emerging approach among the teaching community across the world. This study was pre and posttest design. The Sample consists of 9 boys and 13 girls were selected from one Panjayat Union Primary School, Madurai city. The hypotheses were tested using mean and t-tests. Findings of this study proved that constructivist approach is an effective strategy to learn mathematics. So the teachers need to incorporate constructivist approach in their teaching.
