Some Aspects of the Relationship to Mathematics of Children who Fail in Elementary Schooling

  • Josette Adda

It concerns the idea that children are put off by abstraction and that the greater their difficulties of learning the more they need to be taught Mathematics in a camouflaged form, these forms being related as much as possible to everyday life and as near as possible related to the child’s own experience.
