Kilpatrick, Jeremy; Wirszup, Izaak
The series "Soviet Studies in the Psychology of Learning and Teaching Mathematics" is a collection of translations from the Soviet literature of the past twenty-five years on research in the psychology of mathematical instruction. Also included are works on methods of teaching mathematics directly influenced by this research. The aim of this series is to acquaint mathematics educators and teachers with directions, ideas, and accomplishments in the psychology of mathematical instruction in Russia. Part One of this volume is a review of Soviet instructional psychology from 1920 to the present by one of Russia's leading educational psychologists. Part Two contains five articles from the Soviet literature on the learning of mathematical concepts. Each article exemplifies a key difference between Soviet and American educational psychology.
