A Critical Evaluation of Methods of Analyzing Practice in Fractions


by Leo J. Brueckner & Fred J. Kelly 1930

Recent developments in the techniques for analyzing and constructing instructional materials in arithmetic include two methods related to procedures for studying the content of drill in fractions. These methods make it possible to construct practice exercises in fractions according to specifications that can be set in advance, as can now be done in the work with whole numbers. It is the purpose of this paper to point out the fundamental difference between the two methods that have been proposed by Knight and his co-workers and by Brueckner for analyzing the content of drill materials in fractions. The discussion will be limited to a consideration of the procedures as applied to the subtraction of fractions.
