Abstract

This study was undertaken to determine if specific supplementary activities would increase student achievement in problem solving. The study involved two intact sixth grade classrooms. One was used as the control group and the other group received the supplementary activities. The problem solving section of the Iowa Test of Basic Skills and Teacher-made Test of twelve word problems was administered to students reported in the study. Grade equivalency scores in problem solving from fifth to the sixth grade on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills and gain scores from the pre and post Teacher-Made Test were compared. These results indicated a significant difference existed between the control and experimental groups.
