Critical Variables in Mathematics Education: Findings from a Survey of the Empirical Literature.
Begle, E. G.
This survey represents an attempt to indicate how much is known about all aspects of research in mathematics education. For each topic, a brief description of the variable is provided and the kinds of experiments or other empirical studies which have been used to investigate them are indicated. At the end of each chapter is a bibliography and a list of illustrative research reports. The final chapter contains suggestions as to priorities for more extensive reviews of the available factual information on various aspects of mathematics education and for further research. Topics covered include teachers, curriculum, student variables, environment, instruction, tests, and problem solving. (MP)
