Using Matrix Structures to Integrate Theory and Statistics into a Research Methods Course.
Youngs, George A., Jr.
Teaching Sociology, v15 n2 p157-63 Apr 1987
Describes a visual device, borrowed from matrix algebra, which helps students integrate theory, methods, and statistics in sociological research. Data are organized in a rectangular structure, with the columns of variable names representing theory, the rows representing observations whose quality is related to methodological concerns and the need to summarize a large array of data representing the statistical concern.
