Abstract

The study presented aims at searching the relation between the learning environment and students’ performances in Mathematics. Data of the 27 week-long research were compiled from 9th grade students at an Anatolian High School. Semi-experimental research modelled pre-test post-test control grouped experimental model was used in the study. Before the application, students’ gaps regarding the subjects were found out and students were supported by it and their initial performances were evaluated by using the developed non-routine problem. During the application, the learning process continued taking the performance variables into consideration in the experiment group whereas the constructivist learning approach was used in the control group in accordance with the mathematics program. Data gained from students’ performance evaluations at the beginning and end of the term, were analysed in order to find out the similarities and differences between the two groups. The findings reveal that there is no meaningful difference in the performance grades of students at the beginning of the term. On the other hand, the average performance grades of the students after the application process show a statistically meaningful difference in favour of the experiment group.  Comparisons were made in the experiment group before and after the application.
