Development of Mathematical Connection Skills of Grade II Students by Using Problem-Based Learning with GeoGebra Program


The proposes of this study were 1) to develop the students’ mathematical connection skills in order to pass the criteria of 50 percent of full score, 2) to study the relationship between the students’ learning achievement and mathematical connection skills, and 3) to study the students’ satisfaction toward the problem-based learning with GeoGebra program learning activities. The target group was 38 students of Matthayom Soekasa 5/6 student in academic year 2017 from Sarakhampittayakhom School, Muang, Mahasarakham. The research methodology is classroom action research which consists of three cycles. The research instruments were: 1) 12 lesson plans of the problem-based learning with GeoGebra program, 2) the mathematical connection skills test, 3) the learning achievement test, 4) the observation form, 5) the interview form, and 6) the satisfaction toward learning activity test. The data was analyzed by using mean, percentage, standard deviation and Pearson Product Moment Correlation CoefficientThe results were as follows1. The students’ mathematical connection skills mean scores in the first, the second, and the third cycle were 45.43, 57.47 and 62.76 percent respectively.It obviously be seen that the students’ mean score passed the criteria in the second cycle.2. The relationship between students’ learning achievement and mathematical connection skills in the first, the second and the third were 0.85, 0.87 and 0.81 respectively. It could be seen that there were highly positive relation in each circle.3. The level of students’ satisfaction toward problem-based learning with GeoGebra program learning activities was in high level.
