A Comparison of Two Approaches for Teaching Complex, Authentic Mathematics Problems to Adolescents in Remedial Math Classes.
Bottge, Brian A.; Hasselbring, Ted. S.
Exceptional Children, v59 n6 p556-66 May 1993
Two groups of adolescents (n=36) with learning difficulties in mathematics were taught problem-solving skills under two conditions: standard word problems or contextualized problems on videodisc. Both groups improved their performance, but students in the contextualized problem group did significantly better on the contextualized problem posttest and on two transfer tasks. (Author/JDD)
