Bibliography on averages. (English)
Newsl. Int. Stud. Group Res. Learn. Prob. Stat. 12, No. 3, 11-18 (1999).
Outsiders are frequently surprised that researchers are interested by such a ‘simple’ concept as the average. As we can see in this bibliography (which does not claim to be comprehensive) the concept of average (and related concepts) together with its learning and teaching has been studied, but there is still a lot of look into. The readers interested in the subject should first seek the ‘incontournable’: Pollatsek et al. (1981), Mevarech (1983), Strauss and Bichler (1988), Mokros and Russell (1995). Concept: The first consideration is the concept itself. What does it mean? Where does it come from? How is it used or understood? You will find a few answers in the following papers. Research: Next, it is interesting to look at research papers concerning misconceptions, errors or the effect of teaching and other experiments. (From the introduction)
