Cross-Situational, Cross-Cultural Comparison of the Learning and Use of Problem Solving Skills. Final Report.
This is the final report for a study whose original purpose was to develop a general theory of the situational constraints imposed by the routines of everyday life on arithmetic skills. Section 1 reviews the goals laid out in the proposal in relation to what was accomplished. Section 2 is the draft of "Everyday Cognition: Its Development in Social Context." It presents a theory of problem solving as interaction between setting and activity. Section 3 is the draft of another manuscript, "The Dialectical Constitution of Arithmetic Practice." (MNS)
