Gabel, Dorothy L.; Sherwood, Robert D.
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v20 n2 p163-77 Feb 1983
Investigated superiority of instructional strategies (factor-label method, proportionality, use of analogies, use of diagrams) in teaching problem-solving related to mole concept, gas laws, stoichiometry, and molarity. Also investigated effectiveness of strategies for students (N=609) with different verbal-visual preferences, proportional reasoning ability, and different levels of mathematics anxiety. (JN)
