Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to relate the development of a framework
for inculcating Islamic values among elementary school children.
The teaching of Islamic values is to be integrated in the teaching of
mathematics problem solving. Meanwhile, lesson study have been
identified as the best professional development strategy for the
purpose of coaching the teachers to teach effectively. The paper
discusses the importance of upholding Islamic values in the current
time and looks at the opportunities for value inculcation across the
curriculum in particular for the subject of mathematics. The
framework developed is represented by three layers of concentric
circles. In the innermost circle, Islamic values are separated into
three aspects, akhlaq, adab and virtues from the sunnah of the
prophet. Subsequently, the second inner circle comprises four
components of problem solving i.e. thinking and reasoning,
communication, collaboration and attitude. These elements have
been selected as important elements to inculcate values. Finally,
lesson study, comprising plan, teach and reflect phases have been
chosen as a medium to coach teachers to the processes identified and
mentioned in the outermost circle. Muslim scholars’ views, and their
theories on education and writings on values and character traits,
have also been considered in developing the framework. The
tradition of the Muslim mathematicians during the Islamic
civilization is also included.
