Precision in research on mathematics learning: The emerging field of psycho-mathematics

Authors


  • The name “psycho-mathematics” (“psycho-mathematician”) derives by analogy from psycho-linguistics (psycho-linguist) and suggests a dual concern with human behavior and the structural characteristics of mathematics—the study of the behavioral invariants of mathematical structure.

Abstract

The field of learning psychology spans all the disciplines. This scholarly study, while primarily directing itself to the area of mathematics, will prove to be stimulating and thought provoking to all scientists.
