The Sequence of Reasoning Processes: The Hierarchical Organization.
Fulton, Joan
A sequence of reasoning processes based on a combination of theories developed by Jean Piaget is presented. An applied theory of concept-teaching is derived from the restructuring of Piagetian theories on logical thought specifically concerned with the notions of the additive and multiplicative ordering of groups, and the four logic processes of classification, seriation, causality, and probability. These theories are combined with the dimension of topological time and space. The resultant second-order model is applied to the classroom problem of effective organization of instructional material. The case is made for the instruction of logical processes to students prior to content instruction. Diagrams and references are included. (LH)
