Children's Strategies for Solving Two- and Three-Dimensional Combinatorial Problems

English, Lyn D. (2007) Children's Strategies for Solving Two- and Three-Dimensional Combinatorial Problems. In Leder, Gilah C. & Forgasz, Helen J. (Eds.) Stepping stones for the 21st century : Australasian mathematics education research. Sense Publishers, Rotterdam, pp. 139-156.


Investigated strategies that 7- to 12-year-old children (n=96) spontaneously applied in solving novel combinatorial problems. With experience in solving two-dimensional problems, children were able to refine their strategies and adapt them to three dimensions. Results on some problems indicated significant effects of age.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
