In Pursuit of a Simplex in UICSM High School Algebra. Comparative Studies of Principles for Programming Mathematics in Automated Instruction, Technical Report Number 5.
Rosen, Ellen F.; Stolurow, Lawrence M.
To test whether the process of learning mathematics involves the effect of a hierarchical concept (as opposed to a "snowball" effect, in which one set of concepts becomes the basis for a new set), a matrix of correlations of progress test scores from a self-instructional high school algebra course was analyzed. The form of the matrix did not demonstrate a hierarchical structure, but this, of course, does not demonstrate the validity of the snowball effect. (LH)
