Young children reinvent arithmetic : implications of Piaget's theory by Constance Kamii( Book )

14 editions published between 1984 and 2000 in English and held by 1,309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the foreword to this book, Inhelder states that its essential contribution is that "it transposed to actual reality Piaget's central epistemological thesis according to which mathematical thought is, from its most elementary manifestations, the product of the subject's activity that he characterized by the term 'reflective abstraction.'" The book advocates eliminating all traditional instruction in first grade arithmetic and replacing it with two kinds of activities: situations in daily living (such as voting) and group games. The sections in the book focus on: (1) theoretical foundation, with chapters on Piaget's theory of number and on the importance of social interaction; (2) objectives, including chapters on autonomy, numerals and place value, addition, and subtraction; (3) activities and principles of teaching; (4) how things appeared to the teacher, including a month-to-month account of using Piagetian-based games; and (5) evaluation and prospects for the future. The book, designed for preservice as well as in-service teachers, is based on research, as well as on personal experiences at the University of Geneva. (Mns)

Piaget, children, and number : applying Piaget's theory to the teaching of elementary number by Constance Kamii( Book )

8 editions published between 1976 and 1978 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper proposes a method for teaching number applying the conservation theory of Piaget in the classroom. It is suggested that number facts cannot be taught by social transmission, since there is a fundamental distinction between logico-mathematical and social knowledge. Conservation cannot be taught to non-conservers, but there are ways to utilize and guide children's natural interest in number. Workbook exercises, math time and cuisenaire rods are not among these. Recommended teaching techniques include: (1) teach number concepts when they are useful and meaningful to a child, when the child feels a need and interest in number arising out of his daily activities; (2) use language that illustrates logical quantification or the comparison of groups (I.E., "Bring enough straws for all the children"); (3) encourage children to verify an answer among themselves; (4) encourage children to make sets with movable objects; (5) figure out how children are thinking; and (6) encourage children in a general way to put all kinds of objects, events, and actions into relationships. Snack time, distribution of materials, group games, etc. can be utilized in the teaching of elementary number concepts. (Ms)
