The Effects of Sequence and Mode Upon Mathematics Learning.
Wood, Carolyn M.
Four series of self-instructional elementary multiplication lessons were developed and tested on first-, second-, and third-grade students. The series were: (1) deductive-concrete, (2) deductive-pictorial, (3) inductive-concrete, and (4) inductive-pictorial. Students were given pretests and posttests and a retention test on the objectives of the series, as well as a transfer test consisting of word problems. Analysis of posttest, retention, and transfer data revealed no significant differences among the four treatments; however, there appeared to be differences in the learning patterns exhibited by students at different grade levels.
