Generated Meanings in the Comprehension of Word Problems in Mathematics
ISAIJLS Volume 19, Number 3, ISSN 0020-4277
Discusses how students generate meanings for mathematical word problems, develops a generative predicational model to account for students' comprehension of word problems, and describes an empirical study of Israeli sixth graders that was designed to test the model. Talk aloud protocols of the students are analyzed, and hypotheses tested are discussed. (51 references) (LRW)
