Children's Attainment of Mathematical Concepts: A Model under Development.
Dockweiler, Clarence J.
This paper describes a model of student attainment of mathematical concepts and its development. In this model three types of activities (developmental, connecting, and abstract) are considered as an overlay on the three ways of representing mathematical concepts (physical/visual, oral, and symbolic). Each activity type involves some means of representing mathematical concepts, and the activities are sequentially presented as the learner attempts to master a mathematical idea. Initial exposure comes from Developmental Activities, followed by Connecting Activities, and finally, Abstract Activities are utilized. (Author/MKR)
