Concerning Macnamara's Analysis of Piaget's Theory of Number
Brainerd, Charles J.
Child Development, 47, 3, 893-896, Sep 76
It is argued that Macnamara's criticisms of Piaget's theory of number do not lead to Macnamara's conclusions about arithmetic instruction. These conclusions appear to be based on misconceptions about logic and logical theories of number. The misconceptions are discussed and an empirical rationale for the conclusions about arithmetic instruction is presented. (Author/JMB)
