A Comparison of Two Methods of Teaching Multiplication: Repeated-Addition and Ratio-to-One.
Tietz, Naunda Meier
A random sample of 214 fourth grade students randomly assigned to two treatments completed 15 programmed lessons on multiplication of whole numbers. The treatments differed in the physical referent used in the programmed lessons. One group used an array as the physical referent (Repeated-Addition). The other used a coordinate system and ordered pairs of numbers approach (Ratio-to-one). On the basis of a posttest and retention test given a month later, no significant relationships were found between the physical referent used and the acquisition, retention, and understanding of multiplication.
