Or-Bach, Rachel; Arcavi, Abraham – Journal of Mathematical Behavior, 1992

Presents a model of the tutoring process that takes into account the evolving tutor/student relationship and the subject matter concerns that the tutor is helping the student master. Reports illustrative data from case studies from which the model is derived. (15 references) (MDH)

Picciotto, Henri; Wah, Anita – Journal of Mathematical Behavior, 1993

Presents 24 activities related to the theme of area to illustrate how algebra can empower students, not impede their progress. Activities use grid tools, manipulatives, computational tools, and paper-and-pencil tools to facilitate access, discourse, independence, and multiple representations. Well-chosen themes offer connections, motivation,…

Mecca, Thomas V.; Adams, Charles F. – 1985

Policy Analysis and Simulation System (PASS) is an interactive microcomputer model that can be used by educational administrators, policy-makers, and planners to simulate and forecast, under conditions of environmental uncertainty, the impact of strategic policies on the projected trends and goals of educational performance. PASS generates…

Anderson, Glen; Gallagher, Paul – 1979

This training manual is designed to introduce and assist naval personnel in the conversion from the English system of measurement to the metric system of measurement. The book tells what the "move to metrics" is all about, and details why the change to the metric system is necessary. Individual chapters are devoted to how the metric system will…

Leggett, Stanton – CEFP Journal, 1983

Reviews present and potential uses of computers in schools, explains how computers can be used in facility planning, and advises planners to provide telephone lines and electric power in ample quantity everywhere in buildings. (MLF)

Nasser, Ramzi; Carifio, James – 1993

The purpose of this study was to find out whether students perform differently on algebra word problems that have certain key context features and entail proportional reasoning, relative to their level of logical reasoning and their degree of field dependence/independence. Field-independent students tend to restructure and break stimuli into parts…

Stenberg, Warren; Walker, Robert J. – 1970

Parts one and two of a one-year computer-oriented calculus course (without analytic geometry) are presented. The ideas of calculus are introduced and motivated through computer (i.e., algorithmic) concepts. An introduction to computing via algorithms and a simple flow chart language allows the book to be self-contained, except that material on…

Montague, Marjorie; Bos, Candace S. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 1986

Six adolescents with learning disabilities participated in an eight-step cognitive strategy designed to enable students to read, understand, carry out, and check verbal math problems encountered in the general math secondary curriculum. Visual analysis of the data indicated the strategy was an effective intervention for Ss with deficits in verbal…

Reed, Stephen K. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 1985

Four experiments involving 180 undergraduates evaluated the effectiveness of computer graphics in improving estimates for algebra word problems. Variations in the simulation resulted in successful and unsuccessful programs as measured by the frequency with which students improved their estimates. Quality of feedback to students while learning is…

Boulton-Lewis, Gillian M.; And Others – Journal of Mathematical Behavior, 1996

Describes a study in which Australian children aged 5-8 years old (N=70) were presented with a range of measurement tasks to determine the strategies and devices that they would choose to use to measure length. Results are in conflict with the normal curriculum sequence. Contains 30 references. (DDR)

Davis, Robert B. – Journal of Mathematical Behavior, 1992

Compares the decisions facing teachers in current reform proposals to decisions made by teachers participating in the Madison Project in the 1960s. Discusses teaching methods utilized, lesson planning, and teacher/student interactions. Reports Madison Project teacher's responses to interview transcripts of the tutoring project at Berkeley,…

Kieran, Carolyn; Hillel, Joel – Journal of Mathematical Behavior, 1990

Reported are the activities and findings of a geometry study administered in a sixth grade class using a LOGO-based computer environment primarily involving properties of isosceles triangles. A majority of the students progressed from an unfamiliarity with geometric notions to a successful working relationship even with complex geometric…

Hawkins, J. David; And Others – American Educational Research Journal, 1988

The effects of a package of instructional methods on the academic achievement, behavior, and social bonding of 77 experimental and 83 control students in grade seven who were low achievers in math are described. The potential for preventing discipline problems through promoting sound teaching practices in mainstream classrooms is reviewed. (TJH)
