Abstract

This research aimed to develop animated concept cartoons for the subject of fractions and to evaluate their applicability based on teachers’ and students’ views. In this context, animated concept cartoons (ACC) have been developed that contain some of the acquisitions of "Fractions and Operations with Fractions" in the 5th and 6th grades of the mathematics curriculum. Before the concept cartoons were developed, a needs analysis was made for the students 'misconceptions about fractions by taking teachers' views. The scenarios of ACC for the misconceptions determined afterward 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 received about the concept cartoons.
