A Statistical Analysis of the Relative Effectiveness of Two Methods of Teaching General Mathematics to Twelfth Grade Students.
The author taught one twelfth-grade general mathematics section (30 students) using a lecture method and two sections (31 students) using commercially available games. After six weeks, achievement of both groups was measured. An analysis of covariance (covariate: grade-point-average) was performed. Students in the lecture section showed significantly greater achievement. The author cautions against over generalizing from this result. (SD)
