Experiment in Structural Learning.
Diener, Z. P.
The concern of the experiment is to find out the roles of abstraction and generalization in the learning of mathematical structures. The basic question is whether to generalize before abstracting or vice-versa in order to maximize transfer. The experiment involves four mathematical tasks and a transfer of activity. Experimental procedures are described, but data, analyses, and summaries are not presented. (JG)
