Mathematics Education as a Proving-Ground for Information-Processing Theories.
Greer, Brian, Ed.; Verschaffel, Lieven, Ed.
International Journal of Educational Research, v14 n1 p1-100 1990
Five papers discuss the current and potential contributions of information-processing theory to our understanding of mathematical thinking as those contributions affect the practice of mathematics education. It is concluded that information-processing theories need to be supplemented in various ways to more adequately reflect the complexity of mathematics. (SLD)
