Üstün yetenekli öğrenciler vakitlerinin çoğunu diğer öğrencilerle aynı sınıf ortamlarında geçirmektedir. Ancak, bu ortamlar üstün yetenekli öğrenciler için bazı sınırlılıkları da beraberinde getirmektedir. Bu çalışmanın amacı Ankara ilindeki matematikte üstün yetenekli ilköğretim öğrencilerinin okullarındaki matematik derslerine ilişkin algılarını ortaya çıkarmaktır. Görüşme soruları, konu işlenişi, problem-alıştırma çözme, etkinlikler, materyal, öğretmen, arkadaşlar, ödevler ve genel değerlendirmelerden oluşan başlıklar altında toplanmasıyla oluşturulmuştur. Veriler, özel bir merkeze devam eden ve üstün yetenekli tanısı konmuş dokuz öğrenciden toplanmıştır. Bu verilerden oluşan kategorilerin nitel yöntemlerle incelenerek yorumlanması ile elde edilen bulgular öğrencilerin sınıf ortamlarında yaşadıkları sınırlılıkları ve bu bağlamda matematik dersine karşı algılarını ortaya çıkarmıştır.


Gifted students spend most of their time with regular students in the same classroom settings. However, classrooms have some limitations for them. Aim of this study is to explore perceptions of mathematically gifted students in Ankara about math classes in their own schools. Based on literature, main issues; learning subject, problems-exercises, activities, manipulates, teacher, class mates, books, homework and general issues, constructed interview questions. Data is gathered by interviewing nine mathematically gifted students, 4th, 5th and 6th grade, enrolling in a gifted center. Inferences made from constructed categories lead to findings that these students have some limitations and this study present their perceptions based on these limitations.
