Concepts versus facts: the best of both worlds. (English)
PRIMUS, Probl. Resour. Issues Math. Undergrad. Stud. 9, No. 4, 365-373 (1999).
Tired of the continual calls for more emphasis on concepts in mathematical instruction and less on memorization of facts, the authors desire a clear understanding of concepts and facts. To this end, they explore how concepts and facts are different, how they can be similar, and how both can be taught and assessed. The final goal is to help students learn concepts and facts at higher levels of abstraction, gaining the best of what both facts and concepts have to offer.
