An Investigation of Three Approaches to the Teaching of Mathematics in the Elementary School.
Fisher, Jack R.
Three instructional treatments employed in teaching elementary school arithmetic are investigated and described--Individually Prescribed Instruction, Programed Learning Instruction, and Standard Classroom Instruction. The author provides descriptive information concerning the differences among the three curricular treatments and statistical data relevant to the arithmetic achievement of the pupils involved in those treatments. He describes the school setting for the third, fourth, and fifth grade students in the study. A program of pretesting and posttesting for these students is reported and a summary statement is made concerning the efficacy of the three systems and the need for further research. (JY)
