Developing Conceptual Understanding and Procedural Skill in Mathematics: An Iterative Process.

- B. Rittle-Johnson, R. Siegler, M. Alibali
- Psychology
- 1 June 2001

The authors propose that conceptual and procedural knowledge develop in an iterative fashion and that improved problem representation is 1 mechanism underlying the relations between them. Two… Expand

Conceptual and Procedural Knowledge of Mathematics : Does One Lead to the Other ?

This study examined relations between children's conceptual understanding of mathematical equivalence and their procedures for solving equivalence problems (e.g., 3 + 4 + 5 = 3 + ). Students in 4th… Expand

Compared With What? The Effects of Different Comparisons on Conceptual Knowledge and Procedural Flexibility for Equation Solving

- B. Rittle-Johnson, J. Star
- Mathematics
- 1 August 2009

Researchers in both cognitive science and mathematics education emphasize the importance of comparison for learning and transfer. However, surprisingly little is known about the advantages and… Expand

Assessing Knowledge of Mathematical Equivalence: A Construct-Modeling Approach.

- B. Rittle-Johnson, Percival G. Matthews, Roger Taylor, Katherine McEldoon
- Psychology
- 1 February 2011

Knowledge of mathematical equivalence, the principle that 2 sides of an equation represent the same value, is a foundational concept in algebra, and this knowledge develops throughout elementary and… Expand
