Since education as a science is relatively young, much research still remains to be done to improve techniques and methods of teaching children in light of their native abilities.
It was the purpose of this study (1) to show the effects of grouping in a fifth grade arithmetic class in terms of change in skills and attitudes and (2) to show examples of activities and materials used to promote growth in understandings and skills within different groups.
