    The paper also discusses implications of cognitive styles in terms of improving instructional methods, enriching teacher behavior and conceptions, enhancing student learning and thinking strategies, expanding guidance and vocational decision making, broadening educational goals and outcomes and tuning the stylistic demands of educational environments.   Introduction. Education equips younger generations with important skills and knowledge. Effective learning enables students to learn through creative teaching methods and acquire knowledge in class; the latter becomes an exciting activity through the effort of teachers [].Mathematics education motivates students to become critical and innovative and to cultivate sound reasoning in problem solving.

    Early math education is new and challenging. It involves deep mathematics and many different components, ranging from free play to an organized curriculum. Teaching it is not easy and in fact may be similar to teaching mathematics at the elementary level.   ().

    LLB developed a computer-based test for determining cognitive styles, conducted a factor analysis of the test results. MEO conducted an experiment for determining the cognitive activity of the students with different cognitive styles and provided the analysis of the experimental results. All authors read and approved the final manuscript. learning, in psychology, the process by which a relatively lasting change in potential behavior occurs as a result of practice or experience. Learning is distinguished from behavioral changes arising from such processes as maturation and illness, but does apply to motor skills, such as driving a car, to intellectual skills, such as reading, and to attitudes and values, such as prejudice.

An Investigation of Various Cognitive Styles and the Implications for Mathematics Education. Spitler, Gail Jean The study's purpose was to examine various psychological and educational conceptions of cognitive style, to determine the implications each has for mathematics education, to summarize the related research, and to integrate the research positions.

In so doing, the contributors provide a general introduction to fundamental ideas in cognitive science, plus an overview of cognitive theory and its direct implications for mathematics education.

Schoenfeld. In so doing, the contributors provide a general introduction to fundamental ideas in cognitive science, plus an overview of cognitive theory and its direct implications for mathematics education.

A practical, no-nonsense attempt to bring recent research within reach for practicing teachers, this book also raises many issues for cognitive. This chapter considers the term 'cognitive style' in mathematics to refer to the way a person thinks through a problem.

The interpretation (or speculation) as to what the brain is doing is of interest, in that it gives a neurological perspective on different thinking styles.

Cognitive style is often easy to identify if teachers just take time to observe the student as he works and possibly to reinforce those. This volume is a result of mathematicians, cognitive scientists, mathematics educators, and classroom teachers combining their efforts to help address issues of importance to classroom instruction in mathematics.

Cognitive style is “individual’s habitual way of organizing and processing information” (Liu,pp. ), while learning style is a broader concept. mathematics teacher plays in the formation of student attitudes towards mathematics.

Thus, aiming to develop positive attitudes towards mathematics including confidence, enjoyment and an appreciation of it as a powerful tool should be parallel with the acquisition and the understanding of mathematics concepts and skills in mathematics education. and cognitive and learning styles in web-based learning: report of two randomised trials.

This book describes individual differences that have been documented through scholarly investigations of cognitive styles, highlights philosophical and theoretical foundations of cognitive style concepts, and pinpoints implications for classroom practice.

Abstract: This qualitative and quantitative research shows the effectiveness of using web-based technologies in teaching and learning mathematics based on cognitive learning theories.

Implications for the Classroom The sensitivity of the teacher in dealing with individual learner differences in cogni tive styles in his/her classroom may be a significant influence in facilitating learning.

Educational implications of cognitive styles are discussed in terms of six main rubrics: improving instructional methods, enriching teacher behavior and conceptions, enhancing student learning and. There has long been dispute in mathematics between the drill and practice orientation that focuses primarily on memorizing mathematics as meaningless rote algorithms and the approach based on understanding and making creative use of mathematics.
