Applying Piaget's Theory of Cognitive Development to Mathematics Instruction
Ojose, Bobby
Mathematics Educator, v18 n1 p26-30 2008
This paper is based on a presentation given at National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) in 2005 in Anaheim, California. It explicates the developmental stages of the child as posited by Piaget. The author then ties each of the stages to developmentally appropriate mathematics instruction. The implications in terms of not imposing unfamiliar ideas on the child and importance of peer interaction are highlighted.
