Soviet Studies in the Psychology of Learning and Teaching Mathematics, Volume XIII: Analyses of Reasoning Processes.
Wilson, James W., 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 analysis of reasoning processes in the learning of concepts or the solving of problems is the theme common to the ten articles in this volume. These articles, except for the first one by Ushakova, were published between 1960 and 1967 and were part of the available literature during a revision of the Soviet school mathematics curriculum. The articles are interesting because of the topics they treat and because of the research styles they illustrate. (Author/MK)
