Abstract

The aim of this study is to determine the relationship between visual math literacy self-efficacy perceptions and visual mathematics accomplishments of primary school 7th grade students. The explanatory design of mixed method, that allows use of qualitative and quantitative data together, was employed in the study. The quantitative part of the study carried out on 467 randomly selected students studying on 7th grade of 12 primary schools in the second semester of 2010-2011 academic terms in a city of the Eastern Anatolia region of Turkey. The qualitative part of the study was conducted on 60 students that were chosen with purposeful sampling methodology from a primary school in the same city in the same semester and 7th grade students. According to the results of the study; there is a positive directional, medium and significant correlation between visual math literacy self-efficacy perception and visual mathematics accomplishment. Furthermore, the visual math literacy self efficacy perception is meaningfully a predictor for the visual mathematics accomplishment. As it was expressed by the most of the students who responded interview protocol, these statistical results mesh with the review like "being visual math literate increase accomplishment in visual math".
