A Ninth Grade Piagetian Mathematics Curriculum.
Johanson, Emma Jane Dixon
A curriculum for a ninth grade class is described with apparatus and experiments which involve active manipulation, through which the learner develops concepts and skills. Questions are designed to help the student express himself verbally. The affective development is fostered by game playing, by discussion and by children working in pairs or in small groups. The classroom is in the inner city, the children 95 percent black and of low achievement. Performance is measured by standardized tests of the experimental and control groups. Attitudes toward mathematics are measured by the Prouse Preference Survey and beliefs about internal and external control are measured by the Julian Rotter (I.E.) Scale. The experimenter is present as an aide, during the nine weeks of experimental work. A daily log is kept. The experimental group scores higher in achievement and attitudes than does the control group.
