Research on Mathemagenic Behavior: Implications for Science Instruction and Learning.
Koran, John J., Jr.; Wilson, John T.
The authors present a discussion about activities that learners perform when confronted with instructional stimuli. These activities are classified as mathemagenic activities. A review of the literature is presented to show various attempts made to optimize learning from various instructional systems. Three groups of hypothetical mathemagenic behaviors--translation segmentation, and processing--are presented and briefly discussed. A review of specific research findings is presented. Applications of mathemagenic research and theory to science instruction are described in the paper. A bibliography plus additional references are included in the paper. (EB)
