THE EFFECT OF A PROPOSED STRATEGY BASED ON CONSTRUCTIVE LEARNING ON COGNITIVE FLEXIBILITY AND MATHEMATICAL DESIGN THINKING AMONG MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS
The aim of the research is to know the effect of teaching mathematics according to a proposed strategy for constructive learning on cognitive flexibility and design thinking for the experimental group, cognitive flexibility and design thinking for the control group in mathematics for the middle stage, , the research sample consisted of (63) female students From the second stage, they were divided into two groups, the first experimental (32) female students who studied according to the proposed strategy and the second officer (31) female students who studied according to the usual method for mathematics. After the end of the trial period, the two tests were applied to the two research groups, and the results of the experiment indicated the superiority of the experimental group over the control group, as its average score reached (23,515) on the cognitive flexibility test. This result gave a statistically significant difference at a significance level of 0.05 in favor of the experimental group as the results showed The research showed that there were differences in the mean scores of the Design Thinking test in favor of the experimental group students amounted to (17.47) at a significance level of 0.05. The two researchers recommended the use of strategic steps in teaching for different stages and materials. It also recommended holding training courses and workshops for teachers and teachers to train them to apply modern teaching strategies, including the proposed strategy.
