Incorporating faded worked-examples into the mathematics classroom: exploring gender and socioeconomic effects with two Grade 9 groups from South Africa

Abstract:

Cognitive load theory details how instructional processes can be adapted to reduce unnecessary strain on working memory and improve academic performance. A main component of this theory, the worked-example effect, specifies how the use of worked-examples allows for greater learning gains compared to traditional problem-solving practices for students of low prior knowledge.
