Some Consequences of Learning Theory Applied to Division of Fractions
Bidwell, James K.
School Science and Mathematics, 71, 5, 426-434, May 71
Reviews the learning theories of Robert Gagne and David Ausubel, and applies these theories to the three most common approaches to teaching division of fractions: common denominator, complex fraction, and inverse operation methods. Such analysis indicates the inverse approach should be most effective for meaningful teaching, as is verified by experimental study conducted by the author. (PR)
