Goldstein, Molly H.; Omar, Sharifah A.; Purzer, Senay; Adams, Robin S. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
In schools, design projects can be implemented at a variety of ways and with varying degrees of resources from teachers and schools. However, little work has been done on the differences between student learning outcomes and the type of design projects. This study compares two design projects implemented in 7th grade classrooms (n=677) at two…
