REGARDING THE TRANSFERABILITY OF SKILLS AND COMPETENCY AND THEIR DEVELOPMENT IN THE COURSE OF EDUCATION IN MATHEMATICS IN PRIMARY SCHOOL
Introduction: The building up of transversal competencies and the creation of transferable skills is one of the most important factors for efficient education of mathematics in primary school.
Purpose of study: The purpose of this article is the development of the concepts of transferable skills and transversal competencies, as well as the alternatives for their creation and development in and through the education of mathematics in Grades 1 – 4.
Methods: For the purposes of this study, longitudinal qualitative and quantitative research was applied. The following methods were used: experiment, observation, test, analysis of the content, and mathematical-statistical methodology for data processing.
Findings and results: The percentage of the Grade 4 students who wrongly correlate the text of the mathematical task to a given mathematical model decreased from 42,31% to 3,85%. Also, the percentage of the students who were not able to create a mathematical model decreased from 38,46% to 7,69%. The percentage of the students who correctly created mathematical models increased from 26 % - 38%.
Conclusions: Transferable skills and cognitive transversal competency for processing of information were developed completely.
