The Relative Effectiveness of Two Different Mathematics and Science Programs Used With Disadvantaged and Non-Disadvantaged First Grade Children.
Wheeler, Otis V., Jr.
The purpose of this study was to determine the relative effectiveness of two different mathematics and science programs used with disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged first grade children. Subjects were children in four classrooms in two inner-city schools; 31 used a process oriented, coordinated mathematics and science program and 51 used a content oriented, separate textbook program. Pre- and posttests of modern mathematics concepts, traditional mathematics concepts, and science processes, and a pretest of reading ability were given. Analysis of covariance revealed no significant differences between group means on any of the posttest measures. (MM)
