Teaching and Learning Eighth Grade Mathematics Integers Using Video Clips: An Action Research
Keywords:Video clips, higher-order thinking, COVID-19, mathematics, learning achievement
This study investigated the effectiveness of video clips in enhancing the learning achievement of eighth-grade students in mathematics at Sonamthang Lower Secondary School. An experimental method using a pre-test and post-test was employed as the research design. The experimental group comprised 28 eighth-grade students. Data were analysed in two parts: test score analysis and students’ opinion analysis. Paired sample t-test and descriptive statistics were computed using Google Sheets Add-on XLMiner Analysis ToolPak to determine the differences in the pre-test and post-test scores. The results revealed that the pre-test mean was statistically insignificant, while the post-test mean showed a significant difference between the experimental and control group. Therefore, the study concludes that the use of video clips enhances students’ test scores and also increases their ability to solve higher-order thinking questions. Further, students’ opinion analysis indicated a preference for learning mathematics using video clips. As such, it was recommended that teachers use video clips as an instructional tool to enhance students’ academic achievement and foster motivation.
