Learning Styles according to the Model of Felder & Silverman and its Relationship with Mathematical Self-perceived Efficacy to Students of the College of Education for Pure Sciences - Ibn Al-Haitham

Dr. Lina Fouad Jawad


Abstract: This research aims to know the learning styles according to the model of Felder and Silverman and its relationship to effectively self- perceived mathematical among students of the Faculty of Education Pure Sciences - Ibn al-Haytham. By answering the following questions 1. What are the preferred methods of learning among students in the mathematics department according to the model Felder and Silverman? 2. What is the mathematical self-perceived level of the students at the Department of Mathematics effectiveness level? 3. What is the relationship between learning styles according to the Felder model and Silverman and the effectiveness of mathematical self-perceived of the students of the Department of Mathematics? The research sample consisted of 80 male and female students from the fourth grade students in the Department of Mathematics in the College of Education Pure Sciences - Ibn al-Haytham for the academic year 2015/2016. As for the two tools the first search tools is a measure of learning methods developed by (Felder and Silverman, 1988) Translation (Al-Zubaidi, 2015) which consisted of 44 items distributed on four areas (practical - Contemplative) - (sensory - intuitive) - (optical - pronunciation) - (sequential - total). And the second tool and is a measure of the effectiveness of sports self- perceived , which consists of a paragraph (30), were reliability and validity account and conducted statistical analyzes to calculate the difficulty and ease transactions. After the use of appropriate statistical methods to analyze the results, the results indicated that (1) 37.5% of the students have more than one level indicating no preference for any style of learning. (2) 30% of the students' own (visual - verbal) method (3) 16.25% of the students' own (sensory - intuitive) method. (4) 11.25% of the students' own (sequential - total) method. (5) 5% of the students' own (practical - Contemplative) method. (6) Students did not prefer any of the styles (intuitive - verbal - total). (7) the students in grade IV Department of Mathematics in the College of Education Pure Sciences / Ibn al-Haytham students have aware of the effectiveness of mathmatics. (8) There is no relationship between the learning styles according to the model Felder and Silverman and the effectiveness of sports self-conscious of the students of the Department of Mathematics Therefore, the researcher recommends that students should be aware of the methods and activities that are compatible with their learning methods, as well as the development of their perceived mathematical effectiveness to enhance their ability to solve any mathematical task, no matter how difficult and flexible it may be. In the light of the results of the research, a number of proposals were developed.
