Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of Mathematical Activities using 4D-frame on 5-year-old children's mathematical ability and attitude towards Mathematics. For the study, E, K, and Y preschools located in S city were selected: 28 children from Y preschool as the experimental group(I: n=14, II: n=14) and 28 children from E and K preschool as the comparative group(III: n=14, IV: n=14). During the 8 weeks, the experimental group performed Mathematical Activities using 4D-frame and in the comparison group, Nuri-Curriculum's mathematical activities and mathematics-science integration programs were conducted. The analysis of covariance(ANCOVA) was conducted with the pre-test scores of the experimental group(I, II) and the comparison group(III, IV) as covariance. The results showed that there were statistically significant differences between the experimental and comparative groups. Mathematical Activities for Young Children using 4D-frame enhanced 5-year-old children's mathematical ability and attitude towards Mathematics. The results of this study provide an understanding of the efficiency of early childhood mathematical activities using the 4D-frame in early childhood education and provide basic data for the improvement of mathematical ability and attitude of young children and the applicable educational methods at the field.
