The Effects of Instructional Context and Reasoning Complexity on Mathematics Problem-Solving.
Choi, Jeong-Im; Hannafin, Michael
Educational Technology Research and Development, v45 n3 p43-55 1997
The focus of this study was on the effects of relevance in instructional context and reasoning complexity on mathematics problem solving achievement, transfer, and attitude for fifth graders. Results suggest that rich mathematical instructional contexts best support mathematics problem-solving, but simple, decontextualized instruction yields the most favorable attitudes. (Author/LRW)
