Effect of Constructivist Approach on Mathematical Anxiety among Class Seventh Students

Author Name : Neelam Suman, Dr. Sangeeta Chauhan

ABSTRACT

The study investigated the effect of the constructivist approach on mathematical anxiety among class seventh students. The students of class seventh were the population of the study. The students of class seventh of Lucknow city of Upper Primary School Alambagh Lucknow were selected school by purposive Sampling for conducting the experiment. There were selected the 20 students from the selected school by purposive-cum-random sampling. There were considered two intact groups, one was an experimental group including 10 students and the other was a control group including 10 students. The posttest-only design was used to conduct the experiment. The experimental group was taught through the teaching module, which was the Instructional material of the study based on constructivist approach. In the period of 40 minutes till 6 working days and control group was taught through traditional teaching methods. In the next period of 40 minutes till the same 6 working days. After conducting the experiment, the researcher applied a posttest on both groups. The finding of the study was that the students of the experimental group were found to have low mathematical anxiety than the students of the control group. The students of the experimental group of high Socio-Economic-Status (S.E.S.) were found low mathematical anxiety than the students of the control group of high Socio-Economic-Status (S.E.S.). The students of the experimental group of low Socio-Economic-Status (S.E.S.) were found to have low mathematical anxiety than the students of the control group of low Socio-Economic-Status (S.E.S.). The female students of the experimental group were found to have low mathematical anxiety than the female students of the control group. The male students of the experimental group were found to be low mathematical anxiety than the male students of the control group.
