Comparing Representations and Reasoning in Young Children with Two-Year College Students.
Glass, Barbara; Maher, Carolyn
Problem solving and justification of a diversified group of two-year college students was compared with approaches of younger pre-college students working on the same task. The students in this study were engaged in thoughtful mathematics. Both groups found patterns, justified that their patterns were reasonable and, utilized similar strategies for their solution and methods of justification. The findings support the importance of introducing rich problems to pre-college and college students, under particular conditions. (Author)
