Abstract

Author(s): Derya MARANGOZ Zeynep DEM?RTA?

This research was conducted to determine the effects of mechanical mind games developed by Turkish Brain Team (TBT) on the mental skill levels of second grade primary school students. The study which was applied through experimental model with pretest and post-test control group consisted of 24 private primary school students in Çekmeköy in Istanbul province, 12 of which were in the experimental group and the other 12 in the control group. In the experimental group, students were allowed to play TBT mechanical mind games within two lessons (80 minutes) one day a week for 14 weeks. In the study, a test developed by the researcher was used to determine the mental skill levels of the students (concentrating, strategic thinking, analyzing, part-whole relationship building, visual perception and using clues). The test was applied to the students in the experimental and control groups as pre-test and post-test. The normal distribution of the data obtained in the study was determined by the Kolmogorov-Smirnov Test and t test was used to determine the relationship between pre-test and post-test averages of mental skill levels of students in the experimental and control groups. In the study, it was concluded that students who applied 14 different mechanical mind games for 14 weeks increased significantly for all sub-dimensions in mental skill levels. According to this, it can be said that TBT mechanical mind games have improved the mental skill levels of second grade primary school students.
