The Impact of Teaching by Using STEM Approach in The Development of Creative Thinking and Mathematical Achievement Among the Students of The Fourth Scientific Class
Keywords:STEM Introduction, Innovative Thinking, Mathematical Achievement
The research aims to know the impact of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education on both creative thinking and mathematical achievement. To achieve it, the two researchers followed the quasi-experimental approach with an experimental design for two groups, one experimental and the other a control. The research sample consisted of (32) female students from the fourth scientific grade in Al-Intisar Preparatory School for Girls / Al-Rasafa, First Directorate. The sample was chosen intentionally and was divided into two groups: a control group studying by the traditional method, their number (16), and an experimental group that applied the STEM approach, their number also (16). There was parity between the two research groups in the variables (chronological age, previous achievement in mathematics, innovative thinking). The research tools consist of testing innovative thinking skills (fluency, flexibility, originality, relationships) and achievement tests. The research experiment was applied before and after. To test the validity of the hypotheses, data were collected and then statistically analyzed using appropriate statistical methods. The results of the research found that there were statistically significant differences in both the tests of innovative thinking and mathematical achievement in favor of the experimental group that studied according to the STEM approach, and in light of the results, the researchers recommended several recommendations and suggestions.
