Abstract

Understanding of numbers refers to number sense. Number sense is basic for learning numbers. The aims of this study are to describe 7th students’ number sense who have reflective and impulsive cognitive styles fraction. The subjects were students of the 7th grade. All students’ were given Matching Familiar Figure Test (MFFT) and mathematical ability test. Two students with reflective and impulsive cognitive styles and same mathematical ability were chosen based on reflective and impulsive cognitive styles and same mathematical ability and had to answer number sense test and they interviewed by the researcher based on their work. The research results showed that in general, reflective and impulsive students appear to have difficulties with all strands of number sense except those associated with the use of multi-representation and operating effects. The fact that other strands require a deeper understanding, but reflective student is better than an impulsive student who is shown with the results of this study.
