Översikt om barns lärande i matematik

Nuffield Foundation´s hemsida presenterades häromdagen en sammanfattande forskningsöversikt om hur barn lär matematik. Författarteamet består av Terezinha Nunes, Peter Bryant och Ann Watson, alla från University of Oxford.

The review, Key understandings in mathematics learning ... identifies important issues for policy-makers and practitioners. The synthesis contains an overview paper, six papers that discuss research and theories in detail, and a summary of each of these six papers:

- Understanding extensive quantities and whole numbers
- Understanding rational numbers and intensive quantities
- Understanding relations and their graphical representation
- Understanding space and its representation in mathematics
- Algebraic reasoning
- Modelling, problem-solving and integrating concepts
