The Theoretical Dimension of Mathematics: A Challenge for Didacticians.
Bartolini Bussi, Maria G.
This paper discusses some findings of research studies developed in Italy on the approach to theoretical knowledge. Two examples are discussed in detail: (1) a classroom discussion concerning the shift from an empirical to a theoretical compass in primary school (fifth grade); and (2) the scheme of a teaching experiment on overcoming conceptual mistakes by an original recourse to Socratic dialogue (grades 5-7). (Contains 19 references.) (KHR)
