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.
