Abstract :

 This study investigated the effect of Reciprocal Peer Teaching based on constructivism on achievement in algea of 80 prospective teachers’ in DIET. The constructivist theory to teaching and learning has been oadly addressed in a number of researches in mathematics education(Katic,Hmelo–Silver&weber,2009:Steelye,1995) According to this theory, students do not just passively receive information but constantly create new knowledge based on prior knowledge(schema) in conjunction with new experiences. Reciprocal Peer Teaching(RPT) is a best method to teach the students which is based on constructivism. Parallel group experimental design adopted in this study.The Experimental group (40) was taught algea through Reciprocal Peer Teaching for 3 weeks and control group (40) was taught in the existing normal process of teaching. Results revealed that the Reciprocal Peer teaching is most effective in enhancing academic achievement. The researcher recommends that Reciprocal Peer Teaching be adopted regularly in the classroom so as to help Prospective teachers’ learn mathematical concept more efficiently , enhance academic achievement and developing their teaching competency skill.
