Homework; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Middle school)
The value of homework as part of the educational process has been debated for many years. Some researchers believe that homework is critical to learning and development, while others indicate that there is no benefit to the practice of homework. ...
Mathematics -- Remedial teaching; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary)
Can low achieving mathematics students succeed in the study of linear inequalities and linear programming through real world problem based instruction? This study sought to answer this question by comparing two groups of low achieving mathematics...
Mathematics -- Remedial teaching; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary)
Many resources are currently devoted to math remediation at the college level (Phipps, 1998. Plucker, Wongsarnpigoon, Houser, 2006). These are additional courses that students must take that do not count toward graduation. Universities must...
Educators are aware that there are different types of assessment. Researchers have reported that not only are assessments different, but the way in which a question is phrased on an assessment can affect whether or not students answer...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Higher)
The prediction of college mathematics grades has been widely researched. Results from other studies have shown that the prediction of college mathematics grades can vary depending on the set of predictor variables considered. For instance, some...
