ABSTRACT

The present study proposes a flexible/soft model for investigating the role of philosophic-mindedness, creativity, mathematics self-efficacy, and mathematics self-concept in predicting math achievement. To do this end, a fuzzy regression model is developed. Two common criteria are used to evaluate the obtained model. Moreover, the predictability of the model is explained. The case study involves 28 male students from Marand, Iran (year 2015–2016) who took part in a test of mathematics achievement. The participants were junior high-school students in science field of study who were asked to answer four questionnaires pertaining to philosophic-mindedness, creativity, mathematics self-efficacy, and mathematics self-concept. The analysis of the results through fuzzy regression revealed that philosophical-mindedness is not linked to participants’ math achievement, while the variables of creativity, mathematics self-efficacy, and mathematics self-concept are positively correlated. The results of this study provide suggestions to any educational system in planning for students’ math achievement growth. The proposed methodology is general, so that it can be employed in other educational levels and fields of study.

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
