Teaching Mathematics Understandings for Transfer
Jones, Jennifer L.; Jones, Karrie A.; Vermette, Paul J.
Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, v28 n3 p145-149 Sep 2009
Promoting student understanding for transfer is an illusive hallmark of effective mathematics instruction. While much research has shown the necessity of promoting understanding for transfer, less attention has been paid to actual pedagogical strategies that can be used to promote transfer of mathematical ideas. Using Fogarty et al. (1992, "How to Teach for Transfer", The mindful school, Palatine, Illinois: Skylight Publishing) "ten tools for teaching for transfer" as a model, the authors of this piece provide numerous suggestions designed specifically for promoting transfer of concepts in secondary mathematics.
