Strategies in arithmetic – The role of decomposition

Publikation: Konferencebidrag uden forlag/tidsskriftPaper/skriftligt oplægForskningpeer review

Abstract

The use of strategies in arithmetic depicts underlying conceptual knowledge of numbers. Developmental trajectories of strategies are thus important when working with difficulties in mathematics. I present a case of development of mental strategies in addition from 1st to 4th grade from a Danish school. The results show significant effects of school age in interaction with gender. Decomposition seems to play a role in the developmental pathways suggesting the importance of multi-dimensional or flexible quantitative understanding of numbers. The role of linear contra multi-dimensional thinking in development of strategies and implications for early intervention is discussed.
