Combinatorics And The Development Of Children's Combinatorial Reasoning
English, Lyn D. (2005) Combinatorics And The Development Of Children's Combinatorial Reasoning. In Jones, G. A (Ed.) Exploring Probability in School: Challenges for Teaching and Learning. Springer, New York, pp. 121-141.
This chapter begins by exploring some elementary ideas of combinatorics and how they support children’s development of beginning probability ideas and problem-solving skills. Consideration is then given to various types of combinatorial problems and the relevant difficulties they present children. A review of studies that have addressed children's combinatorial reasoning is presented in the second half of the chapter. The chapter concludes by looking at ways in which we might increase children's access to powerful ideas in combinatorics.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
