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...

This research focuses on the role of pictures in elementary mathematics, specifically algebra. The participants in the study were elementary algebra students in Math 099 at Central Connecticut State University, chosen for this study based on their...
Mathematical ability -- Sex differences; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Elementary)
The purpose of this study was to examine how mathematical discourse affects the achievement level of girls across third, fourth, and fifth grades. The Experimental Group sample of 26 students (13 boys, 13 girls) all participated in the Project M³...
Prediction of scholastic success; Chemistry -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Algebra
In a New England private, all-male high school, all students are required to take a chemistry course, regardless of their academic course level. Many of the students and their parents believe, if they are not strong in mathematics, that they will...
High schools -- United States -- Entrance examinations; High school placement test
The purpose of this study is to design a placement test based upon the curriculum needs of a target magnet school. The placement test will be a diagnostic tool to assist magnet schools in placing students into an appropriate course of study. The...
The relationship between IQ and delinquency has three theoretical relationships: a direct relationship between IQ and delinquency, with IQ directly affecting delinquency; no relationship between IQ and delinquency, with a possible third variable...
Connecticut Academic Performance Test; Mathematical ability -- Testing; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary) -- Connecticut; Achievement tests -- Connecticut
The debate over the effectiveness of a "reform" mathematics curriculum verses a "traditional" mathematics curriculum in student achievement has been widely discussed and studied. Standards-based, or reform, programs emphasize applications to solve...
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...
Let X and Z be topological spaces and Y be a subspace of X. A con-
tinuous function f : Y ! Z is extendable to X if there exists a continuous
function f : X ! Z such that f(x) = f(x) for all x 2 Y . If every continuous
function f : Y ! Z is...
Algebra -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Manipulatives (Education) -- Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary)
This study investigated whether using concrete mathematics manipulatives affected student achievement in factoring second-degree polynomials. The 16 day study included 64 high school sophomores in four different Algebra II classes in a suburban...
“Was mathematics invented or discovered?” This is an age old question that has yet to be definitively answered. Some people believe that the human mind is the creator of mathematics, like a painter or poet, is a maker of patterns. [N, p....
Technology -- Study and teaching (Middle school) -- Connecticut -- Mystic; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Middle school) -- Connecticut -- Mystic; Science -- Study and teaching (Middle school) -- Connecticut -- Mystic
Technology Education at the middle school level fulfills two unique roles. First, it should provide students with a hands-on application of the theoretical aspects of both the mathematics and science curriculums which make-up a portion of the...
Algebra -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Chemistry -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary)
The purpose of this study was to determine if integrating a unit on functions would benefit students. Previous studies have shown that integrating science and mathematics increases students' understanding of certain topics in science. Typically,...
