Summary

This study is one of several conducted by the authors in their investigation of the use of "higher order rules" in the solution of problems. The focus of the current experiment was determination of the compatibility of identified rules with the knowledge of average teenagers, and of the extent to which instruction in higher order rules facilitate performance on geometric construction problems. Higher order rules were presented as flow charts defining four paths. Thirteen construction problems, each solvable by using these rules, were defined. Coincidentally, these problems involved 13 lower order rules. Thirty college students, enrolled in a geometry course, served as subjects. Two pretests, three posttests, and seven instructional sessions were used in a repeated measures design; the sequences in which higher order rules were studied defined the treatments. Overall, findings indicated that instruction on higher order rules was effective and was relatively efficient. Sequential effects were also discovered. (SD)
