An Ethnographic Study of the Computational Strategies of a Group of Young Street Vendors in Beirut.
Jurdak, Murad; Shahin, Iman
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v40 n2 p155-72 Nov 1999
Examines the computational strategies of 10 young street vendors in Beirut by describing, comparing, and analyzing computational strategies used in solving three types of problems: (1) transactions in the workplace; (2) word problems; and (3) computation exercises in a school-like setting. Indicates that vendors' use of semantically-based mental computational strategies was more predominant in transactions and word problems than in computation exercises. (Contains 16 references.)
