A Combinational Model for the Interpretation and Use of Propositions in the Context of Elementary Mathematics.
Damarin, Suzanne K.
The author presents an organizational model which exhibits relationships among preservcie teachers' skills in the use of interpretation of logical connectives in mathematical contexts. The model also provides direction to teahcers of courses on mathematics and mathematics methods who seek to acquaint their students with those notions of logic recommended by CUPM. The model treats the translation from mathematical statements to logical statements, and conversely. An empirical test has yielded considerable support for the model. After a brief description of the model and this test, the author discusses implications for instruction, especially as they are related to statements and context of mathematical problems. (MN)
