# Brain-Based Learning Materials and Mathematics Learning Skills of Primary 1 –3 Students

## Abstract

This research aimed to develop brain-based learning materials and mathematics learning

skills of primary 1 – 3 students. Its specific objectives were: 1) to create a mathematics learning

materials based on brain-based learning for primary 1-3 students in accordance with indicators

and learning standards of mathematics curriculum (2017, revised edition), and 2) to evaluate the

efficiency of mathematics learning materials by using brain-based learning for the students in

primary1-3 in congruence with indicators and learning standards with 3 strands and 5 standard of

mathematic curriculum. The samples were 50 students who were studying in the 4th year of

mathematics program and they enrolled in the professional teaching experience course and were

teaching primary 1-3 at schools located in the remote area of Banna district, Nakhonnayok

province. The research instruments consisted of 1) mathematics learning materials with brain

development processes to develop mathematical skills, 2) mathematics learning materials

creation analysis form, 3) learning materials evaluation form and 4) achievement test. The

statistics used for data analysis were percentage, mean, standard deviation, precision, difficulty,

discriminatory power and confidence by using the KR20 formula according to Couture

Richardson method.

The results indicated that:

1. A mathematics learning materials using brain-based learning for primary 1-3 students

in accordance with indicators and learning standards of mathematics curriculum (2017, revised

edition) contained 38 activities and learning materials. There were 8 activities / learning

materials of students in primary 1, 16 activities / learning materials of primary 2 students and 14

activities / learning materials of 3th primary students.

2. The efficiency evaluation of brain-based mathematics learning materials for students in

primary 1-3 in accordance with indicators and learning standards with 3 strands 5 standards of

mathematic curriculum by experts found that media performance was very high for students in

primary 1, was high level for students in primary 2, and was very high for students in primary 3.

The results of the development of mathematical skills in 3 areas which were numerical thinking,

problem solving, and intelligence of students in primary 1-3 according to indicators and learning

standards with 3 strands 5 standards in mathematics curriculum found that all of students in

primary 1-3 had more results of test after the experiment using mathematics learning materials.
