Effects of Varying Concrete Activities on the Achievement of Objectives in Metric and Non-Metric Geometry by Students of Grades Five and Six.
Bring, Curtis Ray
The purpose of this study was to obtain insights into the learning of concepts in metric and non-metric geometry by fifth and sixth grade students. A total of 102 students were divided into two groups characterized by the amount and type of concrete activities used. A pretest and two posttests were given. Results showed that older students and students with high reading and mathematics levels and high IQ's achieved significantly higher means on the test, and that students using concrete activities achieved higher than students deprived of these activities.
