The Cognitive Complexity of Learning and Doing Arithmetic.
Ohlsson, Stellan; And Others
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v23 n5 p441-67 Nov 1992
Proposes a theory of cognitive processes in doing and learning place value arithmetic. Discusses a computer model that simulates the learning of multicolumn subtraction under one-on-one tutoring to measure the relative difficulty of two methods of subtraction. The model predicts that regrouping is more difficult to learn than an alternative method. (27 references) (Author/MDH)
