The Historical Development of the Laboratory Approach to Elementary School Mathematics.
Bernard, Richard Paul
The historical development of the laboratory approach to elementary school mathematics was studied. Consideration was given to the major psychological theories and philosophical movements that affected the development; the views of leading educators and the mathematics projects and practices related to the program were systematically investigated. Three general conclusions were drawn: (1) the literature was primarily devoted to philosophical discussions of the merits of the laboratory approach; (2) most writers spoke enthusiastically about their success with the approach; and (3) no reports of research to test the alleged superiority of the lab approach to elementary school mathematics were found in the literature.
