Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v33 n1 p30-45 Jan 2002
Interviews 60 Japanese children between the ages of 3 and 7 years to investigate the relationship between levels of abstraction and representation. Indicates that abstraction and representation are closely related. Implies that educators need to focus more on the mental relationships children make because the meaning children can give to conventional symbols depends on their level of abstraction. (Author/KHR)
