Forschung Zum Prozess des Mathematiklernens. Reihe: Materialien und Studien, Band 2. (Research on the Process of Mathematics Learning. Series: Materials and Studies, Volume 2.)

The ten papers in this document were developed for a meeting prepared for the Third International Congress on Mathematical Education. Each paper is concerned with research from 1970-1975 related to the mathematical learning process. The first paper describes projects conducted in England on both content and process learning. The second paper discusses the concrete/semi-concrete/abstract movement, cognitive-affective emphases, and goal structure for learning mathematics. The third paper includes a general description of recent developments in research on individual students, teacher effects, and process-outcome studies. A fourth paper focuses on probabilistic thinking in children and adolescents. The fifth paper looks at the relation between the individual, the environment, and the school as affecting learning. The sixth paper identifies organizations and journals in the United States which are concerned with research in mathematics education. The seventh paper categorizes research on mathematics learning into five general groups: research internal to the field of mathematics education, research by academic and educational psychologists, clinical research, artificial intelligence and computer simulation, and structural learning. An eighth paper summarizes the major psychological influences on the problems of mathematics curriculum and instruction and explores the impact of information-processing theory on psychology and education. The ninth paper (written in German) covers Piagetian theory, cognitive psychology, microprocesses in mathematical learning, and motivation. The final paper discusses the setting for research in the United States and summarizes research on organization and sequencing of instruction, teaching approaches, developmental stages, diagnosis and remediation, algorithmic learning, problem solving, use of materials, achievement evaluation, and attitudes.
