AbstractWe assessed the efficiency of three teaching approaches (inquiry-based, schema based and traditional instruction) with 99 sixth-grade Colombian students and their math teachers. Throughout the intervention’s nine hours of class time, students and teachers worked on elements of combinatorics: tree diagrams, permutations, and combinations.
A significant difference in favor of schema-based and traditional teaching approaches was found. We suggest specific implementation details to use inquiry-based learning in Colombian classrooms as well as discussing the limitations of the study.
