The Effects of Provisions for Imagery Through Materials and Drawings on Translating Algebra Word Problems, Grades Seven and Nine.
Shoecraft, Paul Joseph
Three instructional approaches on translating selected types of algebra word problems were investigated: direct translations, high imagery with materials, and high imagery with drawings. Participating were 366 seventh grade and 336 ninth grade students. Treatment effects by grade used multivariate analysis of covariance for student scores and one-way analysis of variance of scores classified by achievement level. Results showed that except for low achievers who seemed to derive particular benefit from representing problems with materials, students taught to translate directly performed comparably to those experiencing material referents and superior to those experiencing pictorial referents.
