### Cognitive Load and Worked Out Examples of Math Instruction Online

1. 1. COGNITIVE LOAD AND TEACHING “HEURISTIC DOMAIN” SUBJECTS
2. 2. What is Learning?  Selection of important  Integration  Organization
3. 3. Some Vocabulary  Near and far transfer  Schema  Cognitve load  Heuristic domain
4. 4. Cognitive Load  Essential/Intrinsic  Extraneous  Germane/Generative
5. 5. Example to Problem Solving  Beginners: Low domain level knowledge  Result  High intrinsic load  Less working memory for germane load  Unable to use domain-specific solution procedures
6. 6. Renkl &Atkinson (2003)  First: Worked out steps  Self=explanation  Second: Fading  Ask students what rules apply  Third: Solve problems
7. 7. Renkl &Atkinson (2003)  Learning objectives must be precisely defined  Reducing extraneous CL not enough  Germane load must be fostered
8. 8. How to Implement?  10 – 20 Terminology  20 – 25 –30 Worked out examples  35 – 40 – 45 Faded examples  50 – Easiest problem to solve  60 – 90 problems to solve
9. 9. Worked Out Examples 24 x 22 = (2 x 2 x 2 x 2) x (2 x 2) = 64 = 26
10. 10. Faded Examples 24 x 22 = (2 x 2 x 2 x 2) x (2 x 2) = 64 =
11. 11. Problem Solving 24 x 22 =
