Terwel, Jan; van Oers, Bert; van Dijk, Ivanka; van den Eeden, Pieter – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2009
With regard to transfer, is it better to provide pupils with ready-made representations or is it more effective to scaffold pupils' thinking in the process of generating their own representations with the help of peers and under the guidance of a teacher in a process of guided co-construction? The sample comprises 10 classes and 239 Grade 5…

Lai, Meng-Lung; Baroody, Arthur J.; Johnson, Amanda R. – Cognitive Development, 2008
The present research involved gauging preschoolers' learning potential for a key arithmetic concept, the addition-subtraction inverse principle (e.g., 2+1-1=2). Sixty 4- and 5-year-old Taiwanese children from two public preschools serving low- and middle-income families participated in the training experiment. Half were randomly assigned to an…

Scheiter, Katharina; Gerjets, Peter; Schuh, Julia – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2010
In this paper the augmentation of worked examples with animations for teaching problem-solving skills in mathematics is advocated as an effective instructional method. First, in a cognitive task analysis different knowledge prerequisites are identified for solving mathematical word problems. Second, it is argued that so called hybrid animations…
