Abstraction in Mathematics: Conflict, Resolution and Application.
Mitchelmore, Michael C.; White, Paul
Mathematics Education Research Journal, v7 n1 p50-68 Apr 1995
Discusses two meanings of abstract: abstract-apart, ideas removed from reality; and abstract-general, ideas general to a wide variety of contexts. Suggests that greater interest in abstraction as a process, instead of just a product, would be beneficial to mathematics education theory and practice. (48 references) (MKR)
