Effects of Teaching Strategy, Relevant Knowledge, and Strategy Length on Learning a Contrived Mathematical Concept.
Stiff, Lee V.
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v20 n3 p227-41 May 1989
The effects of teaching strategy, relevant knowledge, and strategy length on high school students' mathematical learning ability were studied. Performance was found to increase as levels of relevant knowledge increased. Characterization strategies were found to be more effective than exemplification strategies for students with high relevant knowledge. (Author/DC)
