Mathematics laboratories : implementation, research, and evaluation by William M., Ed Fitzgerald( Book )

5 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication reviews the mathematical laboratory from three perspectives: a practical view of laboratories in operation, a review of related research, and a view of current laboratory evaluation procedures. After a discussion of definitions, types, and purposes of math labs, the first paper concentrates on their historical development in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from their inception in 1967 through 1972. Despite continued interest throughout this period, actual numbers declined rapidly after 1970. Several reasons for this decline are cited. Several projects are reviewed; specifically discussed are problems, solutions, and results. Although generally pessimistic regarding the future of math labs, the author mentions several innovative movements as possible reversing trends. The second paper reviews research on math labs and activity learning, describes ways to employ math labs most effectively, and discusses some apparent effects on student achievement and attitudes (specifically, achievement gains in less able elementary children, with no effect on attitudes). This paper is followed by an extensive bibliography. The third paper critically analyzes seven specific project evaluations--their data collection techniques, types of analyses, and results. Following a discussion of difficulties encountered, the author makes some suggestions, based on the need for individually tailored evaluations. (Cr)

About Mathematics Laboratories by William M Fitzgerald( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper traces the growth of the concept of a mathematics laboratory and reviews recent research and developments in this field. The first section quotes several interpretations of the term and discusses some of the activities advocated by its proponents. The second section quotes extensively from E.H. Moore (1902) and McLennan and Dewey (1895) to show that the idea is older than the present influence of Piaget, Bruner, Gattegno, etc. a section of quotations from more recent advocates of mathematics laboratories is followed by a review of research on the use of manipulative materials, desk-calculators, and science-linked courses: the correlation of motivation with achievement; and the practical difficulties of implementing a laboratory approach in a school. The final sections discuss laboratory materials and the use of laboratory methods in teacher training. (Mm)

A Study of the Teaching and Learning of Growth Relationships in the 6Th Grade. Final Report by William M Fitzgerald( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A mathematics unit for sixth-grade classes was developed in which each of eight activities contains a challenge conveyed in the form of a story. Each activity requires students to manipulate concrete materials such as ceramic tiles, marked string, wooden cubes, and square paper. The mathematical content consists of concepts such as area, perimeter, surface area, and volume; relationships relating to growth and variability; and measuring skills such as counting and rule-governed behavior. Teachers from different types of schools and settings were selected and trained. Four were chosen to be video-taped. Data on student understanding of materials was obtained through individual assessments completed in interviews, final evaluations accomplished through written examinations, and post evaluations administered in a one-to-one setting of student and investigator. Teachers provided descriptions of their teaching experiences and their judgments of student performance. Each activity was evaluated in terms of student and teacher performance. The report contains information on development of the units, data collection procedures, and results of the study. A list of 13 conclusions provide insight into problems encountered and possible methods for improvement. (Author)
