Resumen

Los estudiantes parecen tener dificultades en las fracciones es una evidencia de una comprensión pobre o un concepto erróneo. Comprender el concepto de fracción es importante para que los estudiantes realicen el algoritmo de procedimiento. Dado que los maestros son la persona de primera mano por la cual los estudiantes aprenden matemáticas formales en nuestro país, es muy importante que los maestros identifiquen la comprensión de conceptos y conceptos erróneos sobre fracciones para mejorar aún más la comprensión conceptual y superar los malentendidos del concepto. Por lo tanto, se realizó un estudio destinado a evaluar los niveles de comprensión de los maestros en formación en el conocimiento de la fracción fundamental. Los participantes en este estudio consistieron en 23 maestros en formación que se inscribieron en un programa de educación docente de 4 años en la especialidad de Matemáticas en el Instituto de Capacitación de Maestros Raja Melewar, Seremban. El instrumento utilizado en este estudio es Incorporando Fraction Knowledge Test, adaptado de Chelsea Diagnostic Mathematics Tests. Los resultados muestran que el nivel de comprensión de la fracción entre los profesores en formación está en un nivel moderado. Esto implicaba que existe la necesidad de elevar el conocimiento de los profesores en prácticas en fracción.
