When "The Same" Is Not Perceived as Such: The Case of Infinite Sets.
Tsamir, Pessia
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v48 n2-3 p289-307 2001
Demonstrates how research-based knowledge about students' incompatible answers to different representations of the same task could be used in mathematics instruction. Describes the 'It's the Same Task' research-based activity which encourages students to reflect upon their own thinking about infinite quantities and avoid contradictions by using only one criterion--one-to-one correspondence--for comparing infinite quantities.
