The Effects of Content Organization and Curriculum Implementation on Students' Mathematics Learning in Second-Year High School Courses
Tarr, James E.; Grouws, Douglas A.; Chavez, Oscar; Soria, Victor M.
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v44 n4 p683-729 Jul 2013
The authors examined curricular effectiveness in high schools that offered parallel paths in which students were free to study mathematics using 1 of 2 content organizational structures, an integrated approach or a (traditional) subject-specific approach. The study involved 3,258 high school students, enrolled in either Course 2 or Geometry, in 11 schools in 5 geographically dispersed states. Students in the integrated curriculum scored significantly higher than those in the subject-specific curriculum on the standardized achievement test. Significant student-level predictors included prior achievement, gender, and ethnicity.
