Pascale. a[Washington, D.C.] :bDistributed by ERIC Clearinghouse,c1979. a39 p. aIn "Relating Mathematics to the Middle School Child's Real World", multi-faceted learning kits were developed, piloted, field tested, and revised. The kits make heavy use of games, simulations, practical applications of real world math skills, and other activity-oriented strategies. They use a learning cycle approach to help students improve their skills and attitudes, and teachers their awareness and appreciation, of the use of math in the real world. The summative focus of the evaluation is the pretest-posttest assessment of student performance in mathematical concepts and problem solving as measured by the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills, and attitudes and interest toward mathematics as measured by the Attitude/Interest Towards Math Scale. Year I findings indicated that exposure to kits developed from student need and interest produced statistically significant gains between target group and a matched comparison group on both mathematical problem solving skills and attitude/interest toward mathematics.
