Knowledge-as-Theory-and-Elements

Munson, Alexander An

This dissertation will examine the Knowledge-as-Theory-and-Elements perspective on knowledge structure. The dissertation creates a set of theoretical criteria given within a template by which lesson plans can be designed to teach mathematics and the physical sciences. The dissertation also will test the Knowledge-as-Theory and-Elements theoretical perspective by designing lesson plans to teach a branch of mathematics, graph theory, by using the new template. The dissertation will include a comparative study investigating the effectiveness of the lesson plans conforming to the new template and the lesson plans designed by the traditional theoretical perspective Knowledge-as-Elements.
