Investigations in Mathematics Education, v17 n2 Spr 1984
An editorial and abstracts for 12 research reports are contained in this issue. The editorial by Robert E. Reys focuses on the dangers of publishing poor research. The abstracts, each with a critique, concern research on a game for logical reasoning, wait-time and sex differences, vocabulary instruction on ratio and proportion, male-female enrollment across mathematics tracts, multiplication, partitioning, cognitive style, teacher use of materials, counting strategies in addition, attitudes of precalculus college students, question placement in word problems, and preservice teachers' concept of zero. Research studies reported in RIE and CIJE for October through December 1983 are also listed. (MNS)
