Evaluation of 7(th) grade mathematics teachers' guide book along with the teacher opinions
In Turkey, 7th grade math teachers' guide books which prepared in consideration of new concepts will be evaluated according to the elementary math curriculum of the 2006-2007 academic year. This study aims at determining to what extent the book matches the curriculum principles and approaches, how the approaches are adopted and how beneficial the book is. The study was carried out in different cities of Turkey by selecting randomly 10 secondary level math teachers. These teachers were objected to semi-structured interviews. The study demonstrated that all 10 teachers were positively agreed with using teacher's guide book and they all believed that the book's content should be revised. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd.
