The Part-Whole Schema in the Conceptualization of Fractions.
Zeman, Marvin
Journal of Mathematical Behavior, v10 n3 p251-59 Dec 1991
Describes how an eight year old devised a part-whole schema during a school mathematics process involving the development of a geometric model to conceptualize fractions. Provides examples that utilize this schema in dealing with the relative size of fractions, as well as addition and subtraction, multiplication, and division of fractions. (Author/JJK)
