Some Implications of the Theories of Jean Piaget and J. S. Bruner for Education.
This paper examines the research and theories of Piaget and Bruner and some implications for education, particularly as applied to mathematics education in the elementary grades. Piaget's theories are divided into the general development and conceptual thinking and mathematical concepts in children. Experimental evidence is cited and a short section on structural materials for the mathematics classroom follows. A brief summary ties the two men's beliefs together with respect to readiness, curriculum, and structural materials. (JM)
