What Students Notice as Different between Reform and Traditional Mathematics Programs
Star, Jon R.; Smith, John P., III; Jansen, Amanda
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v39 n1 p9-32 Jan 2008
Research on the impact of "Standards"-based mathematics and reform calculus curricula has largely focused on changes in achievement and attitudes, generally ignoring how students experience these new programs. This study was designed to address that deficit. As part of a larger effort to characterize students' transitions into and out of reform programs, we analyzed how 93 high school and college students perceived "Standards"-based and reform calculus programs as different from traditional ones.
