THE EFFECT OF MUSIC TO THE EXAM SCORES IN MUSIC SUPPORTED TESTS MADE ABOUT SPECIAL-DEFINED FUNCTIONS, TRIGONOMETRY AND COMPLEX NUMBERS
We as educators can benefit from various factors in order to let a person go away from his concerns. We may ask ourselves to this question: Is the music, which already exists in human nature, effective in this matter? the answer to this question makes explicit the thought of many families if they are right or not : “studying while listening to music affects the performance in a negative way” in this regard, the study of “The Mozart Effect” made in 1993 in order to research the relationship between music and education is a significant step. In this sense, the maths exams of the 1st. Grade 134 students of 2010-2011 Fall Term of the Mathematics Teaching for Primary School department of Buca Faculty of Education in Izmir Dokuz Eylül University were carried out accompanied by music in different categories. In a stage of the study, the effect of the music selected by students at the Private Defined Functions, Trigonometry, Complex Numbers subjects on their exam unpoints was analysed one by one. In the other stage, the effect of gender on their exam unpoints at the Private Defined Functions, Trigonometry, Complex Numbers subjects accompanied by music was analysed one by one. The results come up with these studies are thought to shape the related studies in future about music-aided mathematics teaching.
