TITLE: Analysis of Pupils’ Difficulties in Solving Questions Related to Fractions: The Case of Primary School Leaving Examination in Tanzania

AUTHORS: Joyce Lazaro Ndalichako

KEYWORDS: Distracter Analysis; Fraction Computations; Misconceptions

JOURNAL NAME: Creative Education, Vol.4 No.9B, September 30, 2013

ABSTRACT: In this paper, analysis of the performance of candidates in Mathematics in Primary School Leaving Examination was conducted with the aim of highlighting difficulties encountered in solving fraction-related problems.

The analysis has indicated that a considerable number of candidates could not perform correct operations related to fractions.

They tended to confuse fraction concepts with whole number concepts. For instance, in questions involving addition of fractions, they were treating numerators and denominators as separate entities.

Possible reasons for such difficulties in solving questions related to fractions include lack of understanding of appropriate procedures to apply in solving a problem, the complexity of the task, over-generalization of procedures even in situations which are inappropriate.

It is recommended that a protocol analysis be conducted in order to gain a deep understanding of the thought process of candidates when attempting questions related to fractions so that teachers may use relevant teaching methods that would facilitate meaningful learning of fractions

Welcome to the Online Library

A service dedicated to Pupils and students of the Tanzania’s Distance learning community.

Primary education lasts 7 years and ends with the Primary School Leaving

Examination. However, this examination does not lead to a certificate.

Pupils are admitted to secondary education or vocational training centres on the basis of their results.

The Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Vocational Training has general responsibility for the education system.

Amongst other aspects, the Ministry is charged with quality assurance, research, monitoring and evaluation of primary and secondary education.

In addition to the Ministry, various other parties are involved in the governance and monitoring of education services, such as the Prime minister’s office, the Regional Administration and Local Government, various NGOs and individuals coordinated by the central government.

The Ministry is also responsible for higher education at universities. Public universities are semi-autonomous and have the freedom to determine – amongst other aspects – their own curricula. They are also authorised to award academic degrees.

Although the vice-president of the university is appointed by the institution itself, the president is appointed by the President of Tanzania.

All universities, both public and private, operate under the supervision of the Tanzania Commission for Universities (TCU).

The National Council for technical education (NACTE) is responsible for all technical and vocationally oriented secondary and higher education offered at non-university institutions.
