A Logical-Cognitive View of Learning and Teaching Mathematics.
Brazier, Gerald D.; Mick, Harold W.
A model for learning and teaching mathematics is described which focuses on the relationships between mathematical concepts, the psychology of the learner, and instruction. The model distinguishes between figural and operational concepts and the types of abstraction (simple vs. reflective) needed to comprehend these concepts, that is, to assimilate them to appropriate schemas. Three learning-instructional phases are defined. (MN)
