Effectiveness in Learning Newton's Second Law of Motion in Secondary School Physics Using Three Methods of Learning.
Geiger, H. Bruce
Compared were inductive programed, deductive programed, and conventional lecture-question methods of instruction related to Newton's Second Law of Motion on outcome gains including recall of factual information, ability to solve mathematical problems, and retention. Some 266 students in three schools participated and were compared for intelligence, aptitude, numerical ability and verbal reasoning. No significant differences in outcome gains were detected between the three methods. (GR)
