Sutherland, Rosamund; Balacheff, Nicolas – International Journal of Computers for Mathematical Learning, 1999
Considers the idea of "intentional knowledge" and the difference in nature between "knowledge" as a construct of society, and 'knowing' as construct of an individual. Discusses how the theory of didactical situations differs from other constructivist theories with regard to the notion of "intentional knowledge." Uses two cases to illustrate the…

Loong, David Hung Wei – International Journal of Computers for Mathematical Learning, 1998
Describes the peer-apprenticeship learning situation between two students in distributed computer-mediated co-construction of mathematical meanings. As a result of assimilating the disposition towards playing with ideas, students were able to engage in meaningful idea-based social constructivism. Contains 60 references. (Author/ASK)

Hershkovitz, Sara; Nesher, Pearla – International Journal of Computers for Mathematical Learning, 1998
Discusses two approaches to solving word problems that consider the verbal text of the problem, and analyze it to obtain its mathematical expression, as well as its numerical solution. Uses two computerized programs for word problems to capture the various strategies employed by the problem solvers. Contains 21 references. (Author/ASK)

Asiala, Mark; Brown, Anne; Kleiman, Jennifer; Mathews, David – International Journal of Computers for Mathematical Learning, 1998
Reports on a study of the nature of abstract algebra students' understanding of permutations and symmetries. Examines the epistemology of permutations in a finite set of symmetries of a regular polygon. Concludes that the initial genetic decompositions of both concepts are relatively consistent with the data, although a few refinements of these…
