Boersig, Teresa M. – School Science and Mathematics, 1973

Criticizes the DPPC Method (Direct, Pure, Piecemeal, and Complete) of mathematics instruction which is designed to enable the lower ninety percent to become proficient in problem solving. Suggests that this method is deceptive since students learn to follow a prescribed recipe rather than becoming problem solvers. (JR)

Krause, Eugene F. – School Science and Mathematics, 1974

The derivation of a method to drive the general term of a sequence is presented. The difference sequences and binomial coefficents are used in the derivation. An application of this method is made to solve Polya's problems concerned with dividing space in regions by a given number of planes. (JP)

Pullman, Howard W. – School Science and Mathematics, 1979

Pick's Theorem, a statement of the relationship between the area of a polygonal region on a lattice and its interior and boundary lattice points, is familiar to those whose students have participated in activities and discovery lessons using the geoboard. The proof presented, although rather long, is well within the grasp of the average geometry…

Kjeseth, Steve – School Science and Mathematics, 1979

A technique is illustrated for solving relative motion problems using a maneuvering board and vector algebra. The technique can be used to visually illustrate properties of vector algebra in a non-theoretical context. (MP)
