Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v29 n1 p3-20 Jan 1998
Presents a three-year longitudinal study investigating the development of children's (n=82) understanding of multidigit number concepts and operations in grades one through three by using interview processes. Provides an existence proof that children can invent strategies for adding and subtracting and illustrates both what that invention affords and the role that different concepts may play in that invention. Contains 26 references. (Author/ASK)
