Abstract
This study aimed to investigate the effect of using a Teaching Strategy Based on the Habits of Mind in the development of Mathematical Proficiency among Primary stage Students in Jordan. To achieve the objective of the study, the researchers prepared a test in mathematical proficiency and checked it for validity and reliability. An available sample consisting of (47) students was selected from an eighth-grade class in one school of the directorate of education in Al-Mafraq governorate. The sample was divided into two groups. One group consisting of (25) was randomly assigned as an experimental group and was taught the unit of "Algebra" through a Teaching Strategy Based on the Habits of Mind. The other group, consisting of (22) students was assigned as a control group and was taught the unit of "Algebra" through the traditional method. The mathematical proficiency test was administered to the students in the experimental and control groups before and after the experiment. The results revealed that there were statistically significant differences in mathematical proficiency among students attributed to the teaching method in favor of the students in the experimental group which was taught through Teaching Strategy Based on the Habits of Mind. In the light of the results, the researchers recommended the acquaintance of mathematics teachers of the Habits of mind and using them in teaching mathematics.
