Description of Presentation:

This study examined the impact of two teaching approaches (i.e., traditional algorithmic versus instruction using multiple representations) on middle school students’ achievement on problems that integrated fractions, decimals, and percents. Results indicated gains in achievement with both teaching approaches; however, a statistically significant higher achievement gain was found with the traditional algorithmic approach. In terms of the order of teaching approaches, no significant differences were found.
