The education system in the
Republic of Srpska is mainly focused on the implementation of the curriculum
and the adoption of content standardized by the program. Therefore, it is very
often criticized and opposed because its orientation does not touch the
"living context" of students and the expectations of an informal
environment. This is especially true in the field of mathematical primary
education since the mathematics that is taught in school is not the one that
students are interested in, which requires reflection and applications in a
reallife context, as it is taught in an abstract and highly formalized level,
which requires logical reasoning. Hence, there is the antipathy and a high
level of dissatisfaction and insecurity, especially during task solving which
are the aim and the means of learning in math.
There is an unsatisfactory situation in the teaching of mathematics
characterized by a multitude of negative evaluations and a large number of
students who ask for "private lessons". This points us to reexamine
all the parameters which have an impact on the results of mathematical
education in primary schools, especially those that emphasize pupils who,
according to the understanding of developmental psychology are in the center of
the education system. To start with, it is urgent to point out the things which
they are dissatisfied with in the teaching of mathematics and in a perspective
that will adversely affect the development of mathematical literacy and
mathematical competencies and then to their opinion, the teaching of
mathematics in primary school could become more attractive and therefore more
efficient.
Accordingly, the empirical part of the work is organized in order to
examine students' attitudes about the state of primary mathematics teaching and
the factors that can contribute to better and more efficient teaching. By using
the scaling technique on a sample of 157 students from the 8th and 9th grades
of primary schools in Bijeljina, we came to the results that indicate almost
unanimous dissatisfaction of students with the teaching mathematics, first of
all, with outdated mode. The study contributed to the opening of the most
important problems in primary mathematics teaching, and indicated the paths to
which the theory and practice of teaching methodology of mathematics education
in primary education and education itself should be developed.
