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…

O'Neil, Harold F.; Abedi, Jamal – Journal of Educational Research, 1996
Describes research on the development of a measure of student metacognition. The brief, domain-independent measure serves as a collateral measure in construct validation, supporting exploration of the self-regulatory demands of performance assessment. Results show that metacognition can be directly and explicitly measured in the context of…

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…

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…

Moser, James M. – 1979
A discussion is presented concerning variables associated with children's representation of certain addition and subtraction problems. Problem components are classified as physical, pictorial, sensual, verbal-spoken, verbal-written, symbolic, or internal. Problems are discussed as abstract (symbolic) or nonsymbolic. Three problem components are…

Watson, Betty U. – Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, 1992
Twenty reading-disabled, 10 math-disabled, and 25 control-group college students were assessed on a battery of psychophysical tasks that included 5 tests of temporal processing. Findings suggest that poor temporal processing is neither a necessary nor a sufficient cause of reading disability but that there is a modest association between the two…
