An Attempt to Design Instructional Techniques in Mathematics to Accommodate Different Patterns of Mental Ability.
Becker, Jerry Page
Algebra I students were assigned to matched pairs according to scores on mathematical and verbal aptitude tests (high-math, Low-verbal; high-math, high-verbal; High-verbal, low-math; low-verbal, Low-math), then received programmed learning tasks designed to teach summing of series. Either learner was given the correct formula in both verbal and symbolic form or the learner was required to infer the formula from examples. No significant differences were found between the performance of the two groups on tests of recall of terms and symbols and recall of formulae. No significant interaction effects between aptitude and treatment were found. (JG)
