  • Concepts in mathematics have been formulated for unifying and abstractizing materials in mathematics. In this procedure, usually some developments happen by necessity as well as for their own rights, so that various interesting materials can be produced as byproducts. These byproducts can also be established by themselves mathematically, which is called byproduct mathematization (sub-mathematization). As result, mathematization and its byproduct mathematization interrelated to be developed to obtain interesting results and concepts in mathematics. In this paper, we provide explicit examples:the mathematization is the continuity of trigonometric functions, while its byproduct mathematization is various trigonometric identities. This suggestion for explaining and showing mathematization as well as its byproduct mathematization enhance students to understand trigonometric functions and their related interesting materials.

  • As the 7th mathematics curriculum reform in Korea was implemented with its goal based on Freudenthal's perspectives on mathematization theory, the research on the effect of mathematization has been become more significant. The purpose of this thesis is not only to find whether this foreign theory would be also applied effectively into our educational practice in Korea, but also to investigate how much important role teachers should play in their teaching students, in order that students accomplish the process of mathematization more effectively. Two case studies were carried out with two groups of middle-school students using qualitative-research method with the research instrument designed by the researcher. It was found that we could get the possibility of being able to apply effectively this theory even to our educational practice since the students engaged in their mathematization using the horizontal mathematization and the vertical mathematization in geometry. Also, it was mentioned that teachers' role was so important in guiding students' processes of mathematization, although mathematization is the teaching-learning theory, stimulating students' activities. Since the Freudenthal's mathematization applied in the thesis is so meaningful in our educational practice, we need more various research about this theory that helps students develope their mathematical thinking.

  • This research was to help slow learners to be motivated and to make their outcome productive, using GSP based on the mathematization theory for learning mathematics, as a way of encouraging the learner-centered approach. With 2 of the second graders in a high school, who had not yet understood trigonometric functions in their first grade period, 7 units of lesson plans were designed for the research. The results showed that first, understanding real life contexts and analyzing properties by observation, and experiment using GSP, to build the concept of trigonometric functions could be a foothold on which learner's organization and outcome from a horizontal mathematization led to vertical mathematization. Despite the delay during the level-up-stage for a while, the learners could attain the vertical mathematization stage and moreover the applicative mathematization through effective use of GSP and the interaction between the learners or a teacher and the learners. Second, using GSP was a vertical tool of connecting horizontal mathematization with vertical mathematization in forming the concept of trigonometric functions and its meaning could be understood by their verbalizing and presenting the outcomes through their active performance. Using GSP is helpful for slow learners to overcome learning difficulties, based on the instructional materials designed by Realistic Mathematics Education.

  • This article provides how to implement the use of Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) in a teaching a function at a school to improve students' mathematization for their mathematical thinking using technology, This study was planed to get research results using the mixed methodology with quantitative and qualitative methodologies. 120 middle school students participated in the study to bring us data about their mathematical achievement and disposition. Through the data analysis used ANCOVA, the students with the experiment of the mathematization and technology excelled the other groups of students who were not provided with technology or both of them. In analysis of the questions of the achievement test, the problems for vertical mathematization were presented harder for the students than the other problems for horizontal and applicative mathematization. The technology environment might have helped students manipulate the application of real-life problems easier. This means that teachers can put more careful assignment on vertical mathematization using technology. We also explored that learning and teaching under RME using technology encouraged students to refine and develop their informal functional concept and pursue higher thinking of formalization. The study results in a lot of resources for teachers to use into their teaching mathematics for improving students' mathematical thinking.

  • This article provides how to implement the use of Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) in a teaching a function at a school to improve the equity based on the gender in students' mathematization for their mathematical thinking using technology. This study was planed to get research results using the mixed methodology with qualitative and quantitative methodologies. 120 middle school students participated in the study to bring us data about their mathematical achievement. Through the data analysis used by ANCOVA for the qualitative method, the students with the experiment of the mathematization based on technology excelled the other groups of students who were not provided with technology or both of them. Through the data analysis used by the constant comparative method for the qualitative data, the technology environment had helped the female students manipulate learning trends easily, strong construction on horizontal mathematization, depending on discussion with peers, and more reflexive thinking using a calculator. This means that teachers can put careful assignment on each category of mathematization regarding the gender. The study results in a lot of resources for teachers to use into their teaching mathematics for improving students' equity in interactive technology environment.

  • The purpose of this study is to analyze the teacher's discourse structure of teachers according to the interaction pattern between teacher and student in the process of mathematization. To achieve this goal, we observed a semester class (44 lessons) of an experienced teacher who had practiced teaching methods for promoting student engagement for more than 20 years. Among them, one lesson case would be match the teacher's intention and the student's response and the other one lesson case would be to mismatch between the teacher's intention and the student's response was analyzed. In other words, in the process of mathematization based on students' engagement, the intention of the teacher and the reaction of the student was determined according to the cases where students did not make an error and when they made an error. A methodology used to develop a theory based on data collected through classroom observations(grounded theory). Because the purpose of the study is to identify the teacher's discourse structure to help students' mathematization, observe the teacher's discourse and collect data based on student engagement. Based on the teacher's discourse, conceptualize it as a discourse structure for students to mathematization. As a result, teacher's discourse structure had contributed to the intention of the teacher and the reaction of the student in the process of mathematization. Based on these results, we can help the development of classroom discourse for mathematization by specifying the role of the teacher to help students experience the mathematization process in the future.

  • Composition of functions are important tool for producing associativity in mathematical model. However it is not properly treated in dealing together with the other operation, the addition +, of functions defined on real numbers. In this note, we will study mathematization of the construction of nearring axiom from relationships between the addition + and the composition $\circ$ of functions, comparing with those between the addition + and the multiplication of functions. Furthermore, we will suggest some helpful teaching methods of these mathematization in the secondary school mathematics.
