The Role of Review in Mathematics Instruction. ERIC/SMEAC Mathematics Education Digest No. 2.
Suydam, Marilyn N.
The role of review in mathematics instruction is briefly summarized in terms of reasons, timing, and types. Promoting retention is the primary reason for reviewing; continuity, assimilation, diagnosis, learning prerequisites, and confidence are also noted. Research clearly indicates that review should be systematically planned and incorporated into the instructional program at regular intervals. Among the types of review discussed (with some specific examples) are outlining, questioning, testing, group size, homework content, difficulty level, and games. Nine references are included. (MNS)
