This research aims to decrease the misconceptions and concerns of students in mathematic lessons, increase their interest towards the lesson and bring it to the desired level through concept cartoons and help teachers manage their classrooms efficiently. A cartoon delivers an idea directly while shaking the thinking worlds of individuals. Therefore, 11th Grade students studying in 20 Temmuz Science High School during 2015-2016 academic year were chosen. Concept cartoons were applied in mathematics lesson throughout the research. Concept cartoons were prepared for each concept concerning the lesson that would also include the students. 9 concept cartoons were developed on this issue. The application was conducted in 8 weeks. Students were interviewed after the application. A further study needs to be done in order to find out its effectiveness on learning and classroom management.
