Development of Angle Concepts by Progressive Abstraction and Generalisation.
Mitchelmore, Michael C.; White, Paul
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v41 n3 p209-38 Mar 2000
Proposes that children progressively recognize deeper and deeper similarities between their physical angle experiences, and classify them firstly into specific situations, then into more general contexts, and finally into abstract domains. Indicates that the standard angle concept first develops in situations where both arms of the angle are visible. (Contains 53 references.) (Author/ASK)
