Abstract

In this study, it was aimed to prepare animated concept cartoons for the subject of fractions and to evaluate their applicability in terms of teachers’ and students’ views. In this context, animated concept cartoons (ACC) have been prepared that contain some of the acquisitions of "Fractions and Operations with Fractions" in the 5th and 6th grade of the mathematics curriculum. Before the concept cartoons were prepared, a needs analysis was made for the students 'misconceptions about fractions by taking teachers' opinions. The scenarios of ADKK for the misconceptions determined afterwards were created by making use of the literature. These scenarios were prepared using visuals and voiceovers through an animation preparation application. The developed concept cartoons were applied in three different classes in three different schools, then teachers’ and students’ views were taken about the concept cartoons.

Keywords: Fractions, Animation, Concept Cartoons, Students’ Views
