ABSTRACT

This study aimed to investigate the effect of digital mind maps on rational numbers and creative thinking among Jordanian seventh-grade students. The quasi-experimental approach was used to achieve the objectives of the study. The study applied a sample of 120 male and female students of the seventh grade. The results of the study showed that there were differences in the students' responses in the rational number achievement test, and there was an apparent difference between the responses of the experimental group's students compared to the results of the control group's students, and that these differences were in favor of the females compared to males. It was also found that there was an interaction between the teaching method and gender in the achievement of seventh-grade students in the post test. The results of the study also showed that there were differences in students' responses to the creative thinking test, and there was no clear difference between the results of the experimental group's responses and the results of the control group's students' creative thinking test. The results also showed the existence of an interaction between the teaching method and the gender in the creative thinking of the seventh graders in the post test. The study recommended the necessity of conducting a study similar to the current study on subjects other than mathematics in different educational stages (primary, intermediate, secondary, and university).
