ARITHMETICAL ABSTRACTIONS--THE MOVEMENT TOWARD CONCEPTUAL MATURITY UNDER DIFFERING SYSTEMS OF INSTRUCTION.
BROWNELL, WILLIAM A.
SEVERAL TEACHING PROGRAMS OF MATHEMATICAL CONCEPTS WERE INVESTIGATED IN AN EFFORT TO DEVELOP MEANS FOR ENHANCING CONCEPTUAL MATURITY AMONG CHILDREN. INTERVIEWS WERE ASSIGNED TO ENGLISH AND SCOTTISH SCHOOLS WHERE DIFFERENT ARITHMETIC PROGRAMS WERE TAUGHT. DATA WERE COLLECTED ON SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT AND SCHOLASTIC ABILITY FROM INTERVIEWS WITH INDIVIDUAL SUBJECTS. A SERIES OF PRINTED ARITHMETICAL TASKS WAS EMPLOYED TO ASCERTAIN SPECIFIC MENTAL PROCESSES. THE RELATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF ONE PROGRAM OVER THE OTHER WAS NOT FOUND. FURTHER RESEARCH ON CERTAIN GENERAL PROBLEMS IN ARITHMETIC EVALUATION WAS RECOMMENDED. (RS)
