An Investigation of the Relationship of Gagne's Hierarchical Sequence Model in Mathematics to the Learning of High School Physics.
Riban, David Michael
A problem solving card program was constructed on the basis of Gagne's hierarchical sequence model to teach Unit II of the Physical Science Study Committee (PSSC) course in physics. The program was used to diagnose areas of difficulty in problem solving. Remediation on 52 identified mathematical abilities involved in the problem solving tasks was built into the card program. The program was given to two different ability level classes of physics students. The programmed instruction applied increased student performance on course tests and a critical thinking test. No evidence was found to suggest that the mathematical remediation had improved the performance of the groups on the physics tests. (JG)
