The Effect of Activity Oriented Lessons on the Achievement and Attitudes of Seventh Grade Students in Mathematics.
Johnson, Randall Erland
The purpose of the study was to identify the effectiveness of using activity oriented lessons in seventh grade mathematics. Students were randomly assigned to one of six participating classes; two classes used only textbooks, two used instructional modes other than texts, and two used both texts and other enrichment activities. Units in number theory, geometry and measurement, and rational numbers were taught to all groups with achievement tests given at the end of each unit. A pretest and a posttest of attitude toward mathematics using the semantic differential was also given. Findings showed that the activity oriented instruction did not appear to be more effective than instruction with little or no emphasis on activities, both for achievement and for attitude. (DT)
