Negative Instances in Mathematical Concept Acquisition: Transfer Effects Between the Concepts of Commutativity and Associativity
Shumway, Richard J.
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 5, 4, 197-212, Nov 74
The effects of negative instances on the acquisition of the mathematical concepts of commutativity and associativity were examined. Also investigated were possible transfer effects that might result from the use of negative instances. For 64 ninth-grade subjects, results favored the treatments containing mixed instances and supported the transfer hypothesis. (Author/LS)
