Semiotic Aspects of Cognitive Development: Illustrations from Early Mathematical Cognition.
Becker, Joe; Varelas, Maria
Psychological Review, v100 n3 p420-31 Jul 1993
Arguing that cognitive development involves both conceptual and semiotic achievements, the authors emphasize the distinctness of semiotic issues and develop a differentiated appreciation of semiotic aspects of cognition, particularly in elementary mathematics cognition. Semiotic analyses are provided of differences between counting, adding, and multiplying and the conventional place value system. (SLD)
