Feasibility of a New Basis for School Arithmetic. Final Report.
The objective of this study was to explore methods of using commonplace mechanical devices at the fourth grade level to expedite and extend the treatment of two important segments of the lower elementary arithmetic curriculum. The experimental testing of classroom materials took place at the Middle School of the Laboratory Schools of the University of Chicago. The results of this investigation show (1) that common mechanical devices can be effective teaching instruments for up-grading the level of achievement in elementary arithmetic, and (2) that within the pre high school program students can attain a working mastery of the decimal model of the real number system.
