Using Task Analysis to Incorporate Participation into a Strategy for Effectively Using a Film to Teach the Principle of Mathematical Induction.
Wells, Jay Norman
The study was concerned with the effect of dual-media instructional instruments (film and programed text) on learning the method of mathematical induction by college freshmen. One group read the programed text at intervening times during the film showing; one group read the text before and after the showing; and a third group viewed the movie only. No significant differences resulted from treatment or treatment-level interaction for the two groups using dual-media. Significant ability level and completion time differences did exist for these groups. Both dual-media groups significantly outperformed the group who simply viewed the film. Conclusions offered include: (1) films designated for mathematics instruction might be more effective if used in conjunction with written programed material, and (2) time is saved when dual-media instructional instruments are combined as one experience.
