Variables Associated with Problem-Solving Performance: The Rutgers University-Middlesex Public Schools Math Project.
Maher, Carolyn A.; And Others
This study used 152 grade eight students ranging in age from 12 to 14 years from a suburban middle school in central New Jersey. The investigations gave particular attention to the identification of variables that represent understanding of fundamental mathematical structures. The first year of the research took place during the 1978-1979 school year. The population for the second year of the study consisted of 123 ninth-grade students who were eighth-grade subjects the first year. The research is viewed as contributing to the operative memory theory linking mnemonic level to the operational level of a subject, and results are termed as consistent with the view that as intelligence develops changes may occur in the way events are remembered.
