Soviet Studies in the Psychology of Learning and Teaching Mathematics, Volume VII: Children's Capacity for Learning Mathematics.
Steffe, Leslie P., Ed.; And Others
This is one of a series that is a collection of translations from the extensive Soviet literature of the past 25 years on research in the psychology of mathematics instruction. It also includes works on methods of teaching mathematics directly influenced by the psychological research. Selected papers and books considered to be of value to the American mathematics educator have been translated from the Russian and appear in this series for the first time in English. The aim of this series is to acquaint mathematics educators and teachers with directions, ideas, and accomplishments in the psychology of mathematical instruction in the Soviet Union. The work of El'konin, Davydov, and Minskaya reported in this volume represents a start toward the alleviation of the lack of theory-based experimental investigations of mathematics learning and teaching. Chapter titles include: Learning Capacity and Age Level; Primary Schoolchildren's Intellectual Capabilities and the Content of Instruction; Logical and Psychological Problems of Elementary Mathematics as an Academic Subject; The Psychological Characteristics of the "Prenumerical" Period of Mathematics Instruction; and Developing the Concept of Number by Means of the Relationship of Quantities.
