Models of Understanding.
Herscovics, Nicolas; Bergeron, Jacques C.
International Reviews on Mathematical Education, v15 n2 p75-83 Apr 1983
A brief survey of models in dealing with various types of understanding is given. Then a hybrid model, which proved inadequate for describing understanding, is outlined. Finally, four levels of understanding are discussed: intuitive, procedural, abstract, and formal. The concept of number is used to illustrate these levels. (MNS)
