Cognition and Instruction, v18 n3 p285-316 2000
Examined the effects of using structurally organized tile patterns or diverse objects in various patterns to represent numbers on kindergartners' learning of number concepts. Found that at the level of numerical operations, structured materials facilitate children's choice of non- finger strategies and speed up response time for finger-strategy users, whereas varied materials facilitate accuracy for finger-strategy users.
