Abstract: Recent studies in math education focus on differences between behaviors and performances of male and female students. In this study, achievement and attitudes of middle school students to math were described in terms of gender and grade differences. The aim of this study is to determine whether any differences exist between female and male students’ attitudes and successes of middle school toward mathematics. This research was designed as a descriptive research. Students (6th, 7th, and 8th grades) were registered to “Attitude Survey toward Mathematics”. This survey is consisted of two parts. In the first part, there are demographic questions. The second part is 5-Likert type survey which is intended to learn students’ attitudes toward mathematics. Secondly, in order to determine students’ achievements from mathematics, their grades and their state exam results were used. Because of the possibility of differentiation in teachers’ evaluation criteria and their objectivity on students’ successes, both students’ scores from state exam and their course grades were included to the analysis.The findings of this research indicate that attitude of the students toward mathematics and achievement scores in Mathematics have a significant difference in terms of their gender and grade levels. Female students performed more positive attitudes than male students toward Mathematics and female students had higher grades than male students.

Abstract: The Global School-based Student Health Survey (GSHS), State of Lara, Venezuela (GSHS-Lara) is a school-based surveillance system. It comprises a repeated, cross-sectional, self-administered survey drawn from a representative sample of 7th to 9th grade students, performed in the school years 2003-2004 (GSHS-Lara 2004) and 2007-2008 (GSHS-Lara 2008). It explores, among other things, a general violence indicator such as school absenteeism due to feeling unsafe at school or on the way to or from school for any reason; and more specific indicators of violence such as robbery, bullying, physical fights and use of weapons, as well as exposure to lectures on how to prevent violence. Results are given in terms of prevalence percentage.Absenteeism doubled between the two study periods (10.8% to 20.8%). The number of students that were a victim of robbery remained high and without change both outside (14.2% and 14.8%) and inside school (21.7% and 22.0%). The number of victims of bullying was high and increasing (33.4% and 43.6%). Bullying associated with being physically attacked decreased (18.5% to 14.3%). Physical attacks without active participation and not associated with bullying were frequent (21.5%). Physical fighting with active participation prevalence remained high and without change (27.5% and 28.2%). Carrying a weapon almost doubled (4.3% to 7.1%). Less than 65% reported classes for violence prevention.The GSHS-Lara shows that violence is an important public health problem that needs to be addressed by the community and its authorities.Youth violence, an aggressive and hostile behavior amongst youth, is one of the most visible forms of violence in society and a major public health problem worldwide [1]. The World Report on Violence and Health-2000 indicated that fatal forms of violence (i.e. any form of violence and injuries that result in homicide) takes the lives of 545 people aged 10 to 29 years as a result of interpersonal violence each day [2].

Abstract: In this study, the development of chemistry concept through 7th, 9th and 11th grades is determined and it is also searched that the development of chemistry concept is proportional to the historical development of it. The study was carried out with a cross-sectional research in the form of a case study in Giresun in Turkey. Firstly, a chemistry test was applied to 157 students to collect data. With the help of the data handed from the test, a new likert test consisting 12 questions was constructed. The likert test was applied to 30 students in the interviews in order to reveal students’ real ideas and the reasons behind their answers of the first chemistry test. The data frequencies are calculated and tabulated. According to the findings, chemistry concept is constructed in students’ minds related to their grades. There is also a direct relationship between the construction and the historical development of the concept. In order to overcome misconceptions and to teach concepts for meaningful learning, concept mapping, prediction-observation-explanation, interviews about concepts, drawings, fortune lines, relational diagrams and word association techniques are suggested for teachers.

Students came from 15 different elementary schools; 18 of them were female and 28 were male. Seventeen of the participants were 7th graders, 14 were 8th graders and 15 were 9th graders.Data was collected using “Questionnaire for Gifted Students’ Perceptions of Learn-ing, Teaching and Teacher (QGST)” developed by the researcher. It was reviewed by 5 experts in order to examine its content validity. They were professionals in curriculum and instruction, gifted education, and guidance and counseling. After expert revisions, a pilot study was carried out with 21 students before this study. The final form of the instrument included four groups of items. In one item, students ranked 14 teacher characteristics from 1 to 14 in importance with 1 being the most important and 14 the least important. In the other items, of which 4 were open-ended and 7 were forced-choice, students indicated their opinions and choices about learning and teaching. The instrument was administered to the participants during their summer courses they attended at Anadolu University. Data analysis included quantitative and qualitative methods. Quantitative data was analyzed using descriptive non-parametric statistical techniques. Chi-square test and Mann-Whitney-U test were used in testing differences. Qualitative data was analyzed using content analysis approach. In order to ensure the reliability of the analysis, themes and sub-themes created based on data were submitted to experts and they were asked to examine the suitability of the structure created through content analysis. After revisions were made based on expert opinions, the analysis was submitted to another 2 experts. The results showed that the agreement rate between the 2 experts was 96%. Validity of the study was investigated using the internal validity method. Two e

Abstract: The aim of this study is to develop a general attitude scale about environmental issues (GASE) for students in different grade levels. The research was carried out with the total 1225 students; 409 (33.4%) were primary school students in grades 5, 6, 7 and 8; 408 (33.3%) of the students were in grades 9, 10, 11 and 12 at high schools and the remaining 408 (33.3%) students were undergraduates at a university in Artvin. The study consists of five parts including a literature review, item pool, experts’ opinions, administration of scale and computing the reliability and validity. While constituting the pool of items, 21 students in different levels were asked to write a composition related to the environment and environmental issues. A pool of 46 items has been performed, which are directly concerned with the subject of attitude or accepted to be interested in, from the collected compositions. These were edited to 36 items by the opinion of the experts and the five point Likert draft scale. The draft scale was administered to 1,225 students and as a result of factor analysis, the number of items was reduced to 27. The Cronbach-Alpha internal integrity coefficient of the final version of the scale was found to be 0.88 after factor analysis was carried out. After computing the reliability of GASE, the scale is ready to be used.
