Abstract

Fraction Teaching through Integration of HOTS Module (FTI-HOTS Module) was developed to improve pupils' conceptual and procedural knowledge of fractions. FTI-HOTS Module offers an active learning environment that helps teachers to integrate HOTS (Higher Order Thinking Skills) and develop pupils' conceptual and procedural knowledge. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of FTI-HOTS Module implementation in primary schools. A non-equivalent pretest-postest control group design investigation was carried out in order to investigate the effects of FTI-HOTS Module on pupils' conceptual and procedural knowledge in Fractions. A total of 89 Year Four pupils from two primary schools in one of the districts in Malaysia was involved in this study. Each school had one treatment group and one control group taught by the same Mathematics teacher. The data were collected using conceptual and procedural knowledge test of fractions. The result shows a significant difference between treatment and control groups (t(87) = 7.671, p < 0.05), where the treatment group possessed significantly higher conceptual knowledge. The treatment group also differed significantly from the control group in procedural knowledge (t(87) = 2.978, p < 0.05). A retrospective usability evaluation of FTI-HOTS Module implementation was also conducted with two Mathematics teachers as users. Interviews with the teachers revealed that the FTI-HOTS Module was resourceful in guiding teaching. Nevertheless, some improvements of FTI-HOTS Module were suggested to be done before it could be used in other primary schools. For further investigations, affective aspect is suggested to be considered in evaluating the effectiveness of FTI-HOTS Module and with a larger sample size.
