Psychology and Mathematics Education Revisited. Occasional Paper No. 10.
Shulman, Lee S.; Shroyer, Janet
Since the mid-1960s a new approach has dominated American research in the area of mathematics education -- information-processing theory. The author examines several examples of research in this new tradition and sketches the general features of an emerging information-processing psychology of teaching. Information-processing studies that employ descriptions of behavior, systematic introspection, and computer simulation to develop and test theories of mathematical learning and problem solving are described.
