The Construction of Abstract Units in Geometric and Numeric Settings.
Wheatley, Grayson H.; Reynolds, Anne
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v30 n1 p67-83 Jan 1996
Data from (n=4) students in grades three through six showed a consistent parallel between the types of units constructed in a geometric setting with those in a numeric context. Students who constructed abstract composite units in tiling the plane also did so in adding and subtracting whole numbers. (Author/MKR)
