Abstract:In this research, descriptive research approach is used because it is aimed to determine the problems of education in terms of teachers' perspective. The study group of the study consisted of 101 teachers, of whom 61 were female and 40 were male, working in Unye district of Ordu province in the academic year of 2018-2019. The study group was determined by means of easy-to-reach sampling from purposeful sampling methods. In the study, open-ended questions were used as data collection tools. Qualitative data collected in this study were analyzed by inductive content analysis method. In addition, while analyzing the data obtained and reporting the results, quantification (digitization) was made. The findings were discussed as teachers, schools, students, parents and management. According to the results of the research, teachers experienced many problems due to the teacher, school, student, parent and management, some of these problems were deeply rooted, some were temporary or local. It is understood that some problems that cannot be solved cause problems in time and cause problems to become chronic. As a result, the problems that disrupt the educational process should be solved by the authorities with solution-oriented approaches.

Abstract:In this study, it was aimed to determine the opinions of science teachers about genetically modified products (GMO). A descriptive survey model was used. The study group consists of 26 science teachers who teach in public schools and private schools in Istanbul. 7 open-ended questions were prepared to determine the opinions of teachers about GMO products. The data collection phase was carried out in a single stage without any intervention by the teachers and the written answers of the teachers were taken with the help of open-ended questions. In the analysis of the data, content analysis was used from qualitative research techniques. Frequency values were calculated by creating themes and codes. In order to ensure the reliability of the study, data were also examined by a field expert and reliability calculation was performed by using Miles and Huberman's (1994) reliability formula. In the study, it was concluded that the teachers have information about the definition of GMOs, that they create negative thoughts against GMOs and that they negatively affect child nutrition were determined and recommendations were made.

Abstract:Wasan geometry flourished in Edo period of Japan as arty, multiple solutioned and systematic. Teachers are not open and papers are not evaluated. Multiple solutions are seen in parallel with advanced mathematics thinking. 80 middle school and 37 high school pre service math teachers were given a Wasan problem and grouped according to correct answers, different answers, and originality. 24 different answers (equality of diagonals of a square, symmetry, equality of tangent lines, auxiliary lines and auxiliary shapes, cosines’ theorem, tan (67.5), similarities, types of triangles etc.) were detected. Answers were also coded for composite answers (who include two different rules), or simple one ways, first answers, similar solution ways and 5-6 different solutions.

Abstract:Effective and efficient time management is an area of management that is of great importance for teachers in the education process. In this respect, it can be said that teacher candidates should have sufficient skills in effective and efficient time management. In particular, this competence should be managed effectively and efficiently by science teachers, although it is important to emphasize itself in the context of the science course. The aim of this study is to determine the time management skills of science teacher candidates and to determine the change in skill levels according to the level of class. In line with this aim, a total of 135 science teacher candidates who have been studying at a State University in Istanbul in 2018-2019 academic year were selected through objective sampling. The data obtained by using Time Management scale as the data collection tool were analyzed by SPSS statistical program. The mean, standard deviation and one-way variance analyses were used in the analysis of the data and the results were evaluated. It was determined that there was no significant difference between time management skills and classroom level of science teacher candidates and time management skills were “high”.

Abstract:Using spreadsheets for mathematics education is not a new idea. However, analysing student logical mistakes for preserving error types and conceptual decision making would be first to study. A class of students were given two home works in order for grading. They were told to carry on calculations via spreadsheets and give the homework exam with spreadsheet file. In H1, questions were on root finding and solution of simultaneous equations. In H2, questions were on line and curve approximations, interpolation, numerical integration and numerical differentiation. These files are analysed by content analysis of qualitative method. By this way, it is hypothesized that they would do similar errors regarding error types and their decision making would inform us about their conceptual learning.

Abstract:The aim of this study is to examine the attitude of secondary school students towards science and science course. The descriptive survey model, in which participants' views, interests, skills, abilities and attitudes can be determined, was chosen from the general screening models in order to determine the attitudes of the students towards the Science and Science course. The research was carried out with 197 secondary school students (46 fifth, 36 sixth, 60 seventh , 55 eighth grade students) at the public school in Sarıyer, İstanbul. The Attitude Scale of Science Lesson was applied as a data collection tool. Frequency ratios of the data obtained were calculated. According to the results of the research, it was observed that the attitudes of the students towards the science course were positive, but their attitudes towards science were not positive and they had prejudices about this subject.
