A Study of the Effectiveness of a Multiple-Activities Laboratory in the Teaching of Seventh Grade Mathematics to Inner-City Students.
Silbaugh, Charlotte Vance
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of a laboratory in the teaching of mathematics. A sample of 980 students in 36 seventh-grade mathematics classes from six District of Columbia inner-city schools was administered the Comprehensive Test of Basic Skills in October and in the following May. Twelve classes attended multiple-activities laboratories twice a week during this period; twelve classes were housed in the same schools but did not attend the laboratories; and twelve classes were in schools with no laboratories. Analysis of covariance, using the October test scores as covariate, showed significant differences between the May test scores of the three groups. It is recommended that all junior high schools should have at least one mathematics laboratory in operation. (Author/MM)
