Lessons Designed to Teach Fourth Grade Students the Concept Equilateral Triangle at the Formal Level of Attainment. Practical Paper No. 14.
McMurray, Nancy E.; And Others
In the first of these two lessons, students study the concepts of three sides of equal length, three equal angles, plane figure, closed figure, and simple figure by reading descriptions, considering examples and nonexamples, and completing exercises. On the second day they combine these concepts in a definition of equilateral triangle. The materials are self-contained but should be preceded by introduction or review of a vocabulary list provided; answers and explanations immediately follow each set of exercises. A brief introductory review of research related to concept learning describes the rationale for the techniques used within the lessons which were developed as part of the Project on Conditions of School Learning and Instructional Strategies at the University of Wisconsin.
