  4. The effect of contextual pedagogical advisement and competition on middle-school students’ attitude toward mathematics using a computer-based simulation game

    Richard Van Eck, University of North Dakota, United States

    Many students enter mathematics courses with a poor attitude toward mathematics (Gal & Ginsburg, 1994), making attitude as important a consideration as achievement in mathematics (e.g., CTGV, 1992;... More

    pp. 165-195

  5. Exploring the Relationship between Modularization Ability and Performance in the C++ Programming Language: The Case of Novice Programmers and Expert Programmers

    Maurice Vodounon, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, United States

    The primary purpose of the study was to determine if a treatment that concentrates on building programs from previously written modules can improve the decomposition processes of novice programmers... More
