Wright, R. E. – School Science and Mathematics, 1970

Compares achievement of eighth grade ability groups using two modern and one traditional mathematics textbooks. Concludes that learning of traditional concepts was not affected by materials; modern concepts and mathematical knowledge were learned best from modern programs. (JM)

Engle, Carol D.; Lerch, Harold H. – School Science and Mathematics, 1971

Describes a study which compares the abilities of 130 first graders in responding correctly to open (Computational) addition exercises to their abilities in responding to equivalent problems stated in the closed form. No statistical difference between levels of correct responses to opened or closed exercises was indicated. (PR)

Melton, Joseph – School Science and Mathematics, 1971

Discusses a method for individualizing elementary arithmetic so that destructive competition is eliminated, failure is minimized, and positive attitudes increased. Emphasis is placed on competition which matches a child with himself, with progress measured by the growth of the child. Considers suggestions for organizing class, correcting papers,…

Bassler, Otto C.; And Others – School Science and Mathematics, 1971

Briefly reviews important research dealing with the effectiveness of non-directed (discovery) learning as compared to guided learning. Describes experiment designed to assess the relative effects of intermediate and maximal guidance in learning selected mathematic concepts using programed materials. Results reveal no reliable difference between…

Cole, Carol – School Science and Mathematics, 1971

Reviews the need for independent study in science and suggests that independent study should be used in combination with other modes of instruction. Gradually increasing independent study seems more effective than beginning all at once. Considers the role of the teacher, classroom environment, computerized instruction, and includes suggestions for…

Creswell, John L.; Wiscamb, Margaret – School Science and Mathematics, 1970

Presents techniques and materials for instruction at secondary school and upper elementary grades in mathematical concepts of number systems structure. Grouping is used as a simple algebraic system to illustrate structure. Closure, inverse, identity, commutative and associative properties are examines relative to manipulation of geometric figureS.…

Milne, Esther – School Science and Mathematics, 1971

Reviews the nature of the spiral approach in the teaching of mathematics and illustrates its use with an example of teaching place value by presenting eight different expressions of this concept. The spiral approach involves building an idea, concept or an algorithm at different times in different manners. (PR)
