A Cognitive Taxonomy for Mathematics Teaching. School Research Newsletter 1988:4.
National Swedish Board of Education, Stockholm.
This document outlines a theory of learning and education for the teaching of mathematics. The theory is termed a cognitive taxonomy. The taxonomy, developed over a 15-year period, is based on the connection between mathematical material and pupils' reactions to it. The function of this connection is termed a process. The taxonomy is based on the idea that the planning of mathematics teaching should take into account both pupils and subject matter. Research should elucidate and interpret, on a parallel basis, the way in which the subject matter can be arranged for pupils and the way in which individual pupils react to the subject matter. (PK)
