Does the Use of Learning Logic in Algebra I Make a Difference in Algebra II?
Carter, Carolyn M.; Smith, Lyle R.
The purpose of this study was to determine if the use of Learning Logic, an integrated-learning system, by high school students in Algebra I had a significant effect on the performance of these students when they subsequently enrolled in a traditionally taught Algebra II course. Four high schools were selected in which Learning Logic was used for some Algebra I sections and in which other sections of Algebra I were taught without the use of Learning Logic. All such students who enrolled in Algebra II were included in the sample. Results of the analysis of Algebra II grades of these students revealed no significant differences between students who used Learning Logic in Algebra I and students who did not use Learning Logic in Algebra I. Teachers who used Learning Logic noted some benefits in terms of attitudes of students. (Author)
