ABSTRACT

The purpose of this research was to determine that the use of the Tortugarte educational
software develops the capacities of the mathematics area in fourth grade students of the
"Virgen de la Candelaria" Educational Institution, Poyunte - Celendn, 2014.

The sample was made of 36 students of both sexes, 18 students for the experimental
group and 18 students for the control group. The type of research was applied, in the
quantitative approach of quasi-experimental design. In order to test the hypothesis, it
was used as instrument a mathematics knowledge test with pretest and posttest.

It was determined that the use of Tortugarte educational software influenced in a


significant way, a 35% in Reasoning and Demonstration ability, 30% in Mathematical
Communication and a 39% in Problem Solving, this fact shows that the objectives have
been met and the Hypothesis has been confirmed.

ABSTRACT

The present research had as objective to determine that the use of the
Tortugarte educational software develops the capacities of the area of
mathematics in the students of the fourth degree of the educational institution
"Virgen de la Candelaria" of Poyunte - Celendn, 2014. It was worked with a
sample of 36 students of both sexes, 18 for the experimental group and 18
students for the control group. The type of research was applied, in the
quantitative approach of quasi-experimental design. To test the hypothesis, a
test of knowledge in the area of Mathematics with pretest and posttest was
used as instrument. It was determined that the use of Tortugarte educational
software significantly influenced 35% in Reasoning and Demonstration
ability, 30% in Mathematical Communication and 39% in Problem Solving,
which shows that the objectives have been met and the Hypothesis has been
confirmed.
