Chinese young children’s strategies on basic addition facts
Sun, Huayu Vicky (2008) Chinese young children’s strategies on basic addition facts. In Goos, Merrilyn , Brown, Ray , & Makar, Katie (Eds.) The 31st Annual Conference of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 28 June-2 July, 2008, Brisbane.
Kindergartens in China offer structured full-day programs for children aged 3-6. Although formal schooling does not commence until age 7, the mathematics program in kindergartens is specifically focused on developing young children’s facility with simple addition and subtraction. This study explored young Chinese children’s strategies for solving basic addition facts as well as their intuitive understanding of addition via interview methods. Results indicate a strong impact that teacher-directed teaching methods have on young children’s cognitions in relation to addition.
