Problem Solving with Equals: Peer Collaboration as a Context for Learning Mathematics and Spatial Concepts.
Phelps, Erin; Damon, William
Journal of Educational Psychology, v81 n4 p639-46 Dec 1989
The effects of peer collaboration on mathematical and spatial reasoning were assessed for 152 fourth graders. Effects on learning with logical-physical materials were assessed 1 year later. Findings suggest that peer collaboration is effective for tasks that require reasoning but not for tasks that require rote learning or copying. (SLD)
