Using Cognitive Theory to Support Mathematics Teachers' Knowledge.
Orton, Robert E.
Focus on Learning Problems in Mathematics, v13 n3 p17-24 Sum 1991
Describes how a mathematics teacher's knowledge level can be supported or justified by a criterion different from test scores of teacher's students, namely the ability of the teacher to justify teaching practices by appealing to concurrent learning method. Two examples are provided that formalize theoretical justifications as practical arguments with premises linked to cognitive theory. (20 references) (JJK)
