Relationships of Teaching, Learning, and Supervision: Their Influence on Student Achievement in Mathematics.
Ziegler, John F.; Yan, Wenfan
The findings of this study support the positive effect of constructivist learning practices, specifically on emphasis on problem solving strategies and their effect on student mathematics achievement. The results also suggest that setting, certification, teaching experience, gender, and minority status are factors related to the use of constructivist teaching, learning, and supervision practices. These findings imply that smaller rural schools may provide environments that are more suitable for constructivist teaching practices to occur and that younger staffs, females, minorities, and mathematics teachers are more likely to use constructivist practices.
