Construction of multiplicative abstract schema for decimal-number numeration

Baturo, Annette R. & Cooper, Thomas J. (1998) Construction of multiplicative abstract schema for decimal-number numeration. In Proceeding of the 23rd Conference of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, Haifa.


This paper reports on an intervention study planned to help Year 6 students construct the multiplicative structure underlying decimal-number numeration. Three types of intervention were designed from a numeration model developed from a large study of 173 Year 6 students’ decimal-number knowledge. The study found that students could acquire multiplicative structure as an abstract schema if instruction took account of prior knowledge as informed by the model.

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.
