An Experiment in Three Approaches To Teaching Average to Elementary School Children.
Baker, John D.; Beisel, Raymond W.
School Science and Mathematics, v101 n1 p23-31 Jan 2001
Uses a traditional approach with problem solving, a concrete approach with manipulatives, and a visual approach with computer spreadsheets to teach the arithmetic mean to 22 children in grades 4-6 in three multiage groups. Differences among pretest, posttest, and interview performances suggest some advantage to the use of a visual instructional style. (Contains 16 references.) (Author/ASK)
