Using The Concrete-Representation-Abstract Instruction To Teach Algebra To Students With Learning Disabilities, Edward William Sung Jan 2007

Using The Concrete-Representation-Abstract Instruction To Teach Algebra To Students With Learning Disabilities, Edward William Sung

Theses Digitization Project

This project explored the Concrete to Representational to Abstract instruction (CRA instruction) as a strategy to teach abstract math concepts for secondary students with learning disabilities. Through the review of literature, multiple researchers suggested that students with learning disabilities need to be exposed to a variety of instructional strategies to develop problem solving skills in algebra concepts.

Teaching And Learning The Concept Of Area And Perimeter Of Polygons Without The Use Of Formulas, Jamie Robin Anderson Mickens Jan 2007

Teaching And Learning The Concept Of Area And Perimeter Of Polygons Without The Use Of Formulas, Jamie Robin Anderson Mickens

Theses Digitization Project

The purpose of this study was to increase the student's understanding of the measures of area and perimeter of polygons. The goal of the project was to create a supplemental geometry unit to develop the concept of the area and perimeter of a polygon without the use of formulas and numbers and to measure the effectiveness of this unit on student understanding. Two high school geometry classes with under 28 students each participated in this study.


Assessing Online Assessments: A Comparison Study Of Math Assessment Tools For Third-Grade Students, Tina Kim Chan Jan 2007

Assessing Online Assessments: A Comparison Study Of Math Assessment Tools For Third-Grade Students, Tina Kim Chan

Theses Digitization Project

The study reported here examined the move towards online assessments and addressed the question of whether or not different assessment tools affect student scores and student learning. The research activities covered a three-week period, from June 5, 2006 to June 23, 2006. During this time, seventeen third grade students served as their own control group by taking several math tests online and several math tests with paper and pencil. Results were compared to see if performance on computer-based tests would be more successful than pencil-and-paper tests. A follow-up survey to evaluate and interpret the quantitative results was also used. Findings ...
