Compendium for Research in Mathematics Education eChapter 12 Providing Support for Student Learning: Recommendations from Cognitive Science for the Teaching of Mathematics (Download)
Star and Verschaffel make the case that recent findings from cognitive science research can and should inform the learning and teaching of mathematics. As such findings have often been content-generic, the authors focus on research that is specifically mathematics-oriented and stems from work in mathematics classrooms. The chapter introduces promising findings related to the implementation of beneficial practices in classrooms.
