Using Research: A Key to Elementary School Mathematics, The Research from 1970: What Did It Add?
Suydam, Marilyn N.; Weaver, J. Fred
A review of research reported in 1970, which might be used by the elementary teacher in facilitating mathematics learning is presented. There are 16 basic categories of research included: teaching mathematical operations; children's perception of geometric representation; curriculum sequencing; teaching of non-decimal numeration; variables which affect verbal problem solving; teaching mental computation skills; applications of Piagetian-research in education; role of manipulative materials; test and text selection; computer role in math instruction; individualized instruction; discovery learning; effects of reinforcement techniques on achievement; pupil-tutor utilization; relations of pupil attitude and achievement; relationships of teacher characteristics on student attitude and achievement. Research results and teaching conclusions are given for each of these areas. (JG)
