In a well-developed essay, CHOOSE a topic that is clearly connected to our discussions or readings. The topic should have a problem in need of a solution. This change can be local, school or city, or larger, state or national. The point is for you to find your topic, identify a problem related to the topic, and craft an argument for a policy change as a solution to the problem you identified. ARGUE your position using RESEARCH to support your claims and propose your unique policy change.
Wu and Ma (2005) conducted a study called as ‘The Geomtric Concepts of Elementary School Students at Van Hiele Level One’ which aims to explore the geometric concepts of the elementary school students at the first level of van Hiele’s geometric though.For this study, they studied 5,581 elementary school students, randomly selected from 23 cities in Taiwan. They used the instrument called as Wu’s Geometry Test (WGT), was specifically designed for this project, in this study. They concluded that students evaluated the figure according to their appearance.Also, the circular concept is the easiest for students; onthe other hand, the concept of quadrilateral is the most difficult to students. As the result of the study made by Clements et all (1999) with middle-class children, it was concluded that the circle was easily recognized but difficult to describe for these children. Because most children described circles as “round’. 3.METHOD The purpose of the present study is to investigate seventh grade students’ understandings of circle and circle theorems and to examine most common misconceptions and errors in this topic. The other specific interest of the study is to examine what are the reasons of these misconceptions and errors of circle and circle theorems in geometry. 3.1. Design of the Study In order to the investigate research questions, qualitative research methods will be used.The main purpose of this study is to analyze Turkish seventh grade students’ understandings of circle and circle theorems. While analyzing Turkish seventh grade students’ understandings of circle and circle theorems, their misconceptions and errors of circle and circle theorems will be examined. The descriptive methodology and student inteview will be used in the study to analyze and interpret the results. The descriptive method will be used since the main purpose of this study is to clarify an existing situation.>GET ANSWER
