A Comparison of Three Methods of Teaching Selected Mathematical Content in Eighth and Ninth Grade General Mathematics Courses, Final Report.
Maynard, Fred J.; Strickland, James F., Jr.
This study reports on the comparison of three methods of teaching general mathematics: (1) non-verbalized student discovery of principles and generalizations, (2) student-teacher development of principles and generalizations, and (3) teacher statement and application of principles and generalizations with illustrations in a problem set followed by student application. The bases for comparisons in each unit of instruction were achievement and retention. None of the three teaching methods was superior for male students on either achievement or retention. Female subjects in general achieved significantly better (.05) under the directed methods, but retention differences were non-significant. (Author/RS)
