Abstract


The aim of this study is to determine the effect of mathematics teaching with cartoons on the problem solving skills of primary school 2nd grade students based on addition and substraction. In the research, pretest-posttest control group design of the experimental model was used. In the classroom where the experimental group students were present, cartoon supported education was applied and the current program based teaching method was used in the control group class. The target population of the study consisted of 2nd grade students of all primary schools of the Ministry of National Education of Mersin. The population of the study consisted of 2nd grade students of all primary schools of the Ministry of National Education of Mersin.
