Godfrey, Leon; And Others – School Science and Mathematics, 1979
Methods are discussed for transforming sets of data so that properties of the scale used to obtain the data are preserved. A list of suggested activities is included. (MP)
Descriptors: Data, Instruction, Learning Activities, Measurement

Pinker, Aron – School Science and Mathematics, 1978
The direct quote word problem from scientific literature is suggested as a means of demonstrating the relevance of mathematics to other fields. (MP)

Bennett, J. Phillip – School Science and Mathematics, 1978
This survey reports data showing that mathematics courses generally use a modern approach but that there appears to be a slightly increased preference for traditional mathematics. (MP)

Campbell, James Reed – School Science and Mathematics, 1974
Behaviors of one low and one high ability group were analyzed in three classroom situations. The teacher's effect on discipline of the former was pronounced, and observers felt this group learned only in the science classroom; the high ability group experienced less variation. Results on other variables are reported. (SD)

Brumbaugh, Douglas K.; Hynes, Michael C. – School Science and Mathematics, 1974
Students calculated the potential speed of a 10-speed bicycle when operated in different gears from measured tire circumference and observed number of revolutions per minute. They then tested the bicycle's speed and compared achieved and theoretical speeds. Hypotheses to explain differences are solicited. (SD)

LaBar, Martin; And Others – School Science and Mathematics, 1974
The authors provide a list of calculators which have a capacity for handling programs, and a list of programs for such calculators which are available at cost. They argue that the use of these materials at many levels of mathematics instruction enhances both motivation and understanding. (SD)

Sloyer, C. W.; Crouse, R. – School Science and Mathematics, 1976
An "up-to-date" application of algebraic techniques is described. The authors suggest that many such applications can be derived from newspapers and other sources. (SD)

Duncan, David R.; And Others – School Science and Mathematics, 1976
Weather data gathered from the local newspaper can be used in teaching a unit on statistics. (SD)

Baumann, John R.; Carter, Larry L. – School Science and Mathematics, 1976
In an experimental approach to the teaching of General Mathematics, students work individually on projects; two teachers work together with the class. Although evaluation is incomplete, the authors feel the approach has had a positive effect on student motivation. (SD)

Brumbaugh, Douglas K.; Hynes, Michael C. – School Science and Mathematics, 1976
A game, similar to bingo is described, in which students match names, symbols, and figures. (SD)

Wardrop, R. F. – School Science and Mathematics, 1974
Examples of mathematical problems which arise outside the classroom situation are presented. The author suggests that the conceiving and solving of such problems by students would be a good way to provide the students with applications of the mathematics they learn. (JP)

Kuhfittig, Peter K. F. – School Science and Mathematics, 1974
Forty seventh-grade students, grouped by ability and instructed by intermediate or maximal guidance with or without concrete aids, were given post and retention tests. Low-ability students using aids achieved higher than those taught without aids. Intermediate-guidance groups had higher mean transfer scores when using aids, with no differences…

Eynden, Charles Vanden – School Science and Mathematics, 1974
Discusses terminology used by teachers for the symbol "-x" which cause students to become confused. Suggested methods of avoiding this confusion are presented. (JP)
