A Study of the Dependence of Mathematics Achievement on Reading Achievement.
Smith, Louise Mosimann
The mathematics achievement of 60 third-grade nonreaders was examined in order to determine whether reading achievement is a necessary prerequisite for mathematics achievement. Pupils were randomly assigned to either a control group which received mathematics instruction in regular classes or an experimental group which received instruction in groups of ten. Children were tested before and after the eight weeks of instruction, with the Comprehensive Test of Basic Skills. Analysis of results indicated that the experimental group improved significantly more in mathematics achievement than did the control group and also gained at a rate at least that of an average student.
