To effectively teach science in the elementary classroom, pre-service K-8 teachers need a basic understanding of the underlying concepts of physics, which demand a strong foundation in mathematics. Unfortunately, the depth of mathematics understanding of prospective elementary teachers has been a growing and serious concern for several decades. To overcome this challenge, a two-pronged attack was used in this study. First, students in mathematics courses were coupled with physical science cou...

Abstract One of the key findings of Educational Effectiveness Research (EER) is the importance of the classroom level as a predictor of pupil outcomes. Research from developed countries has therefore centered on the classroom, and classroom processes as an important determinant of students' learning outcomes. Unfortunately, little of this strand of research has been conducted in sub-Saharan African countries, particularly in Ghana. This study is the first of its kind in ...

The study sought to investigate the effectiveness of using base ten materials (abacus) to enhance primary four pupils' performance in the concept of place value. In order to achieve the purpose, the quasi experimental design was used. Stratified and simple random sampling procedures were used to select a sample of 30 pupils (15 for experimental and control groups respectively) from a population of 70 pupils. Achievement test on place value was used on the groups to gather data for the study. ...
