In this study, abstraction processes of 7th grade students were examined. In addition, it has been tried to explain how the implementation of this process affects the students' academic success. For this purpose, the experiment and control groups were formed. While the current teaching program was applied to the control group, the experimental group was taught with the ACE teaching cycle which is the application dimension of the theory based on the abstraction philosophy. It can be stated that such a study is shaped according to semi-experimental method. The application was carried out in the 7th grade of a state secondary school in the province of Erzurum in the 2014-2015 academic years, with a total of 31 students in the experimental group and 32 students in the control group. Both quantitative and qualitative data were obtained in the study. The achievement tests developed by the researcher for the quantitative data and the interview forms developed by the researcher for the qualitative data were used as data collection tools. In addition, camera records and observation notes obtained from the process were used. Therefore, in this study, it was tried to provide reliability by data diversity. The analysis of the quantitative data was done by statistical tests and the analysis of the qualitative data was done by descriptive analysis method. At the end of the research, it is seen that students’ abstraction level of the equation subject is better in the group that ACE teaching cycle is applied than the other group. Furthermore, it is seen that teaching in application process keeps the students’ interest and motivation alive. According to the results obtained it can be said that classroom activities based on students’ abstraction process may be necessary for a qualified learning.
