Mathematics as Reasoning--Episodes from Japan.
Sawada, Daiyo
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, v2 n6 p416-21 May 1997
Describes three episodes in Sendai, Japan: (1) reasoning with number patterns (grade one); (2) engaging in logical analysis (grade five); and (3) a reason to reason (grade five). Observation of these episodes reinforces importance of the teacher's patience in guiding the lesson and encouraging several alternative solutions from students. Lessons involve a great deal of talking which leads to careful listening and carefully constructed explanations. (AIM)
