Effectiveness of University of Illinois Committee on School Mathematics (UICSM) Stretchers and Shrinkers and Motion Geometry Materials in Improving Arithmetic Ability.
Trent, John H.; And Others
This study compared the relative effectiveness of the new University of Illinois Committee on School Mathematics (UICSM) "Stretchers and Shrinkers" and "Motion Geometry", mathematics materials with traditional mathematics materials in improving arithmetic ability of underachievers. Data on arithmetic computation, concepts, and application of random samples of seventh and eighth grade students at one junior high school were obtained and analyzed. The "t" test was used to determine possible significant differences between the control group, which used traditional materials, and the experimental group, which used the UICSM materials. The findings showed that for seventh grade students there were no significant differences. However, for eighth grade students there were significant differences favoring students using the "Motion Geometry" materials. (Author/MM)
