A Comparison of Three Sequences of Moves for Teaching Conjunctive and Relational Mathematical Concepts to Students in Elementary Education.
Catanzano, Robert
Thirty-six prospective elementary education teachers were randomly assigned to three instructional moves: a characterization-exemplification with declarative statements (CED), a characterization-exemplification with interrogative statements (CEI), and an exemplification (E). The purposes of the study were to: (1) examine the efforts of the three sequences of moves whenever the number of exemplification moves for the CE sequences was increased to that used by the E sequence, and (2) to determine the differential effects of activity and passivity learning relative to the three sequences of moves. Programmed instructional materials were used to develop a partitioning and a measuring-pyramid concept for the three-day experimental period. The only significant differences detected were those between the high and low achievement level groups. The CE sequences were found to be as effective as the E sequences, and passivity learning was found to be as effective as activity learning at the concrete and symbolic stage. (Author/MN)
