Lamon, Susan J.
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v27 n2 p170-93 Mar 1996
Analyzes (n=346) grades 4-8 children's partitioning strategies in terms of a framework that translates economy in number or size of pieces and use of perceptual cues into sophistication in unitizing. Proportionately more students used economical partitioning strategies than used less economical cut-and-distribute strategies. (Author/MKR)
