The aim of this study is to determine the conceptions of
high school
students about mathematical connections to the reallife. This study is a descriptive research using survey model. The study group consists of 159
high school
students. The questionnaire developed by researchers comprises four parts. First three parts are 5point Likerttype scales and the fourth part consists of open ended questions. Descriptive statistics were used in the analysis of quantitative data.
Content analysis
was used for qualitative data. This study revealed that although the students perceived the process of connecting mathematics to the reallife as important, they perceived that this process was not implemented sufficiently. The examples given by the students as connected to the reallife were generally about numbers and these examples such as calculating and shopping were mostly poor. It is recommended that some amendments in mathematics classes in terms of both content and context should be implemented. These amendments would help students see the connection between reallife and mathematics.
