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)

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)
