Teaching Mathematical Induction I.
Journal of Mathematical Behavior, v5 n3 p305-17 Dec 1986
A novel approach to teaching mathematical induction was used, based on a Piagetian theory of learning abstract mathematical concepts in which the learner uses reflective abstraction to construct new schemas out of old ones. Computer experiences are used to induce students to make the appropriate reflective abstractions. (MNS)
