SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES 

The specific objectives of the Department of Mathematics of Kültür College; 

Our aim is to provide our students with the ability; 

• to notice that Mathematics exists in life

• to use Mathematical thinking skills to solve the problems they encounter in daily life 

• to categorize, analyze and to interpret Data

• to relate new information with the current, 

• to use Mathematics in the process of modeling and problem solving actively 

• to be curious about reason-result queries and enable them to discover, 

• to use Information and communication technologies actively while learning mathematics 

• to create all the mathematical background that will be essential for Higher education

 

 

METHODS 

We work in accordance with the fundamental principles of active learning in our classes; 
We keep our students at the center of the learning process. 
The course provides the highest possible level of student participation 
We motivate our students and keep our students actively during the lesson. 
We use activities which include wondering ,questioning ,exploring and learning to get rid of memorization. 
Students are held responsible for their own learning process in a democratic education atmosphere.
We download our lecture notes and activities into our school’s “CATS” system.
Each student can enter the system to reach the lecture notes and assignments the days which they couldn’t attend the lesson. 
HOMEWORK AND STUDENT TRACKING 

Each week students are given tasks which asses the achievements of the previous week.
Weekly assignments and quizzes are checked and given feedback in order to follow the academic development of our students.
If the learning process isn’t performed enough, we will plan additional studies to support our students.

 RESOURCES 
We take advantage of a variety of domestic and foreign sources , prepare lecture notes , activities and worksheets to use in lessons in addition to  textbooks of national ministry .

ASSESSMENT 

Each semester in Mathematics and Geometry classes, according to the weekly lessons, 2 or 3 written and at least 2 oral grades are given. In Term 1 and Term 2 at least 2 trial exams  are applied. Oral assessments are done according to oral evaluation rubrics, which are shared with the students at the beginning of the year, the students' performance in the classroom, homework performances, their achievement in quizes, trial exams, class activities, assignments and performance tasks.
