Developing Concepts of Mathematical Structure: Pre-Arithmetic Reasoning versus Extended Arithmetic Reasoning.
Morris, Anne K.
Focus on Learning Problems in Mathematics, v21 n1 p44-72 Win 1999
Examines students' understanding of the quantitative relationships, operations, and properties of relationships and operations that are introduced in arithmetic and beginning algebra courses. Develops alternative approaches to the teaching of structure such as the structural-to-computational model and the procedural-to-structural model. Concludes that the structural-to-computational approach is effective in directing attention toward structure. Contains 37 references. (ASK)
