Dahlberg, Randall P.; Housman, David L.
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v33 n3 p283-99 Sep 1997
Addresses the initial understanding that advanced undergraduate mathematics students exhibit when presented with a new concept in an environment requiring self-generation and self-validation of examples of the concept. Concludes that students who used an example generation learning strategy were more effective in attaining an initial understanding of a new concept than those using other strategies. (AIM)
