INQUIRY-BASED MATH TEACHING AT ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS IN OLOMOUC REGION OF THE CZECH REPUBLIC

D. Nocar, K. Bártek

Palacký University in Olomouc (CZECH REPUBLIC)
Currently, in education we increasingly encounter the effort to improve and increase the effectiveness of teaching mathematics at elementary schools. One possibility is implementation of inquiry-based teaching which is based on a constructivist approach to education. This approach corresponds with current trends in education which are expressed in more intense application of activities oriented to the change of acquiring and mastering of new knowledge by pupils including active use of digital technologies in education.

The aim of the research was to analyze elementary school teachers’ awareness of inquiry-based math teaching at elementary schools in the Olomouc Region of the Czech Republic, if they use it and what specific experience they have with this way of teaching.

The research was carried out by questionnaire survey. Then, analysis of the questionnaire survey was performed and the paper presents the results and preview of the use of inquiry-based approach in math teaching at elementary schools of the monitored area.
