FUN MATH (MATH TEACHING THROUGH DRAMA AND GAMES)
According to the research, students’ mathematics is the most disliked and difficult course. This is due to the inadequate teaching methods of mathematics, an abstract lesson and the necessity of time and energy. But drama and games can be transformed into a fun lesson as a learning method that draws students’ attention and encompasses different learning styles. Mathematics is considered as more boring and difficult by many children. There are many reasons for this: Some of these reasons are that children need more play activities, have different learning styles, prejudices and teachers’ method techniques do not attract children’s attention. Because of these reasons, children’s learning processes need to be set up in such a way that they can take a more active role and learn with fun. For this, the most basic tools are games. The game is unique learning tools in which every child loves to participate actively. On the other hand, by playing a role in creative drama activities, the concretization of abstract concepts and associating mathematics with the real world offers a more permanent learning and fun process. According to the researches, teachers have more successful results with mathematics teaching through games and the other technics which attract children’s attention.
