The Relationship of Multiple Embodiments of the Regrouping Concept to Children's Performance in Solving Multi-Digit Addition and Subtraction Examples.
Wheeler, Larry Eugene
The purpose of this study was to analyze the relationship of a child's performance in solving addition and subtraction problems using concrete embodiments compared to his performance using the symbolic mode. A random sample of 144 second grade children were tested. It was found that children proficient in regrouping addition and subtraction examples on three or four embodiments scored significantly higher on the written tests than children not proficient in using concrete materials, and significant correlations were found between the number of embodiments children were able to regroup and their performances.
