The Evolution of Mathematical Reasoning: Everyday versus Idealized Understandings.
Schliemann, Analucia D.; Carraher, David W.
Developmental Review, v22 n2 p242-66 Jun 2002
Considers how students' mathematical thinking evolves as a result of their actions and everyday experiences and from increasing reliance on introduced mathematical principles and representations. Exemplifies how 8- to 10-year-olds' personal representations come to face with representations involving algebraic concepts. Explores implications for theories of instruction and long-term development of mathematical reasoning. (Author/KB)
