Children's Construction of Mathematical Knowledge in Solving Novel Isomorphic Problems in Concrete and Written Form.
English, Lyn D.
Journal of Mathematical Behavior, v15 n1 p81-112 Mar 1996
Presents case study data of low- and high-achieving nine-year olds focusing on construction and analogical transfer of mathematical knowledge during novel problem solving, as reflected in strategies for dealing with isomorphic combinatorial problems presented in hands-on and written form. Results showed that achievement level does not predict children's attainment of higher stages of strategy construction. (Author/MKR)
