Boaler, Jo
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v29 n1 p41-62 Jan 1998
Reports on three-year case studies of two schools using alternative mathematical teaching approaches. One used the traditional textbook approach and the other used open-ended activities at all times. Concludes that students who followed a traditional approach developed a procedural knowledge, while students who learned mathematics in an open project-based environment developed a conceptual understanding. Contains 41 references. (Author/ASK)
