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)

McKeough, William J. – School Science and Mathematics, 1970

Describes an instructional method in secondary school mathematics applicable to physics instruction, to develop conceptual understanding of motion word problems. Distance, rate, and time are defined, used as variables and considered with relative motion as a unifying concept. (JM)

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.…

Wollman, Warren; Karplus, Robert – School Science and Mathematics, 1974

A total of 450 seventh and eighth graders responded to six tasks requiring proportional reasoning and representing different degrees of concreteness. Results showed that more students answered questions correctly when concrete aspects existed, and that about one-fourth of the group was unpredictable in applying proportional reasoning at the formal…

Austin, Joe Dan; Austin, Kathleen A. – School Science and Mathematics, 1974

Students from two junior high school mathematics classes were assigned either to a treatment in which every homework problem was graded or to one in which a random half of the problems were graded. There were not significant differences between treatment groups on achievement after a six-week period. (JP)

Crouse, Richard – School Science and Mathematics, 1974

A mathematics methods course is described in which peer teaching is used. Topics for lessons are selected from those appearing in professional journals. Evaluation and discussion of each person's lesson is carried out by the whole class. (JP)
