Henderson, Ronald W.; Landesman, Edward M.
Journal of Educational Research, v88 n5 p290-300 May-Jun 1995
Reports a college-school project that examined the effects of thematically integrated mathematics instruction on Mexican American middle school students' mathematics achievement, attitudes, and motivation.
