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…

Callihan, Hubert D.; Bell, Frederick H. – School Science and Mathematics, 1977

A survey of Pennsylvania secondary schools showed that relatively few (15 percent) schools offered probability and statistics regularly as a complete course and of those which did, the course was elected primarily by seniors. Reasons for the lack of offerings are analyzed. (DT)
