Talisayon, Vivien M. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1983
Presents a readability formula and compares it with existing formulas and procedures. The formula uses reader feedback (identifying unclear words, sentences, paragraphs, figures, tables, and equations of reading material) and is considered appropriate for science and mathematics curriculum materials. (JN)

Inder, W. R. D. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1982
Mathematics is a language -- a way of describing, recording in mathematical sentences, and interpreting the symbols used to denote relationships. It is also an activity involving a way of thinking and a means of using relationships to solve problems. Opportunities must be provided for these activities in mathematics teaching. (Author/JN)

Utsumi, Seiji – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1983
Comparisons of four videodisc systems are given, and then compared with videotapes. Education projects using videodiscs are noted, and problems of using videodiscs in education are noted. It is believed that videodiscs, especially when operated by a microcomputer, will open new aspects of computer-assisted instruction. (MNS)

Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1981
Instructions (with diagrams and parts list) are provided for constructing an eye model with a pliable lens made from a plastic bottle which can vary its convexity to accommodate changing positions of an object being viewed. Also discusses concepts which the model can assist in developing. (Author/SK)

Collis, Kevin F. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1981
Describes three procedures (with sample items) developed to measure conceptual growth in children: (1) a short answer type achievement paper test; (2) stimulus cards; and (3) card sorting task. Tests were designed to enable investigators to observe, record, and quantify student's thinking without disrupting or distorting it. (DS)

Sia, Archibald Peterson C. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1980
Describes a study designed to compare the gradual development of children's understanding of shadows with Piaget's stages, categorize pupil responses in the shadow tasks, identify typical pupil responses in each category, and enumerate curriculum implications from the investigation. (GS)

Acuna, Jasmin E. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1980
Describes two studies conducted with selected groups of elementary and secondary science teachers, which established levels of cognitive functioning, cognitive style, nonverbal intelligence, verbal ability and abstract reasoning. Constructs models of the relationship between variables from intercorrelations and partial correlations among tests.…

Tee, Tan Boon – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1980
Explores the meaning which children attach to time. Offers possible definitions of time and questions the reliability and validity of the standard unit of time as used in school laboratories. (GS)
Descriptors: Concept Formation, Definitions, Elementary School Science, Elementary Secondary Education
Yodintra, Smai – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1980
Discussed are the problems of teaching and learning fractions in the upper primary and lower secondary schools. Recommendations for teaching fractions are made and defects in various methods of fraction instruction are identified. It is suggested that fractions not be taught in upper primary and lower secondary schools. (Author/DS)
