103- Religious Engagement and Context in Mathematical Problem Solving

Tuesday, April 16, 2013: 4:45 PM-6:00 PM
Lobby A (Colorado Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Edd V. Taylor
Tracy E. Dobie

Description of Presentation:

This study examines problem solving of 30 children from a tithing (giving 10% of earnings to the church) religious community. When children were given mathematical tasks in a school-like context versus a church context, they used different mathematical strategies as a function of context, problem type, and their own tithing history.
