Gravemeijer, Koeno; Bruin-Muurling, Geeke; Kraemer, Jean-Marie; van Stiphout, Irene – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2016
This article offers a reflection on the findings of three PhD studies, in the domains of, respectively, subtraction under 100, fractions, and algebra, which independently of each other showed that Dutch students' proficiency fell short of what might be expected of reform in mathematics education aiming at conceptual understanding. In all three…
