Learning Mathematical Structures.
Branca, Nicholas A.
This paper describes some game situations used to study how subjects learn mathematical structures, in particular the structures of the cyclic groups of orders 2 and 4 and the Klein-four group. A series of experiments are reviewed and the methods used to determine whether subjects did learn the structures are discussed. Differences in strategies, conceptualizations, and interpretations are presented. Possible effects of such factors as age, sex, ability, and method of presentation are also discussed. (Author/LS)
