Consistency and Representations: The Case of Actual Infinity.
Tsamir, Pessia; Tirosh, Dina
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v30 n2 p213-19 Mar 1999
Demonstrates how research-based knowledge of students' incompatible solutions to various representations of the same problem could be used to raise their awareness of inconsistencies in their reasoning. Reports that students' decisions as to whether two given infinite sets have the same number of elements depend on the specific representation of the infinite sets in the problem. (Author/ASK)
