The Effects of Varying Practice Exercises and Relating Methods of Solution in Mathematics Problem Solving.
Sumagaysay, Lourdes Sonza
The purpose of the study was to investigate the effects upon achievement of three levels of sequencing in problem type and two methods of presenting problem solutions. Six treatment combinations of the above were randomly assigned to 18 classes in a school system (grade level unspecified). Results showed that the sequencing called Moderately Varied (in which the number of problem types gradually increased from one in the first practice session to three in the last) was found to be the most effective sequence. Moderately Varied combined with Related Method (in which a single sentence model unified all solutions for the three problem types) was shown to be the best combination insofar as learning-retention was considered.
