Fifth Graders' Enumeration of Cubes in 3D Arrays: Conceptual Progress in an Inquiry-Based Classroom.
Battista, Michael T.
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v30 n4 p417-48 Jul 1999
Utilizes the psychological and sociocultural components of a constructivist paradigm to provide a detailed analysis of how the cognitive constructions students make as they enumerate 3D arrays of cubes develop and change in an inquiry-based, problem-centered mathematics classroom. Describes the classroom work of three pairs of 5th-grade students on an instructional activity involving predicting the number of cubes that fit in graphically depicted boxes. (Author/ASK)
