Rich with empirical research on reflecting abstraction at work in the thinking of 4 to 12 year olds, the studies in this volume examine its role in many contexts of cognitive development such as: reasoning about mathematics; forming analogies; putting objects in order by size and comparing the resulting series; and navigating through a wire : Jean Piaget.

Two impor. The first concerns reflective abstraction and the other is writing in mathematics. Therefore, the literature focuses on these two themes, or closely related issues. Reflective abstraction and construction of knowledge.

In order to discuss abstract thought and reflective abstraction, these terms first need to Cited by: Reflective abstraction is drawn from what Piaget (, pp. ) called the general coordinations of actions, and as such, its source is the subject and it is completely internal.

This kind of abstraction leads to a generalization which is constructive and results in “new syntheses in midst of which particular laws acquire mew meaning”.

Reflective abstraction is a Piagetian concept that develops in the formal operational stage. It describes how adolescents acquire knowledge for the first time by thinking about their thoughts and abstracting from these personal reflections.

This enables them to notice inconsistencies in their mental sets and gives them the ability to think morally and socially.

Reflective abstraction is a term that has been used in various, yet similar, ways in mathematics education. The use of this term is examined with a final definition honed from this group and used Author: Laurel Cooley.

REFLECTIVE ABSTRACTION IN ADVANCED MATHEMATICAL THINKING ED DUBINSKY Our purpose in this chapter is to propose that the concept of re ective abstraction can be a powerful tool in the study of advanced mathematical thinking, that it can provide a theoretical basis that supports and contributes to our understanding of what this thinking is and how we can help students.

The notion of reflective abstraction was introduced by Piaget and, over a period of many years in a number of works, he expanded and elaborated this concept. He considered it to be the driving force of the (re-)constructions involved in the passage through the stages of sensori-motor actions, semiotic representations, concrete operations, and Cited by: To put it simply, reflective essays constitute a critical examination of a life experience and with the right guidance, they aren’t very difficult to put together.

A reflective essay is akin to a diary entry, except that others will be reading it so it needs to have a great deal of coherence and a good structure.

Topics covered include the psychology of advanced mathematical thinking, the processes involved, mathematical creativity, proof, the role of definitions, symbols, and reflective abstraction.

work on abstraction in the development of mathematical understanding from a constructive-empirical perspective draws on Piaget’s () description of three forms of abstraction: empirical abstraction, pseudo-empirical abstrac-tion and reflective abstraction.

When someone is acting on objects in the external world and deriving knowledge from. This book is the first major study of advanced mathematical thinking as performed by mathematicians and taught to students in senior high school and university.

Its three main parts focus on the nature of advanced mathematical thinking, the theory of its cognitive development, and. Advanced Mathematical Thinking has played a central role in the development of human civilization for over two millennia.

Yet in all that time the serious study of the nature of advanced mathematical thinking – what it is, how it functions in the minds of expert mathematicians, how it can be encouraged and improved in the developing minds of students – has been limited to the reflections. understanding of schemas as described in reflective abstractions was not adequate to provide a satisfactory explanation of the data.

The introduction of the triad then helped to elaborate a deeper understanding of schemas and better explanations of the data. The theory on reflective abstraction and the triad suggested by Piaget and Garcia.

A revised introduction to Piaget's thought incorporates research done by scholars of the "Genevan School" to discuss Piaget's theory of knowledge, the notion of identity, empirical and reflective abstraction, and the process of equilibration.

Below is Gibb’s Framework for Reflection as an example of a reflective framework. Other reflection models are provided on our website. The Gibbs’ () Reflective Cycle. In this model, there are 6 stages: 1) Description: what. Part 2: The Core: Overview. Reflection or ‘reflective practice’ is a theory of knowledge acquisition predicated on the belief that learning occurs through deliberate and comprehensive thinking about a schema or activity, both during and after the performance of that activity.

1 Most descriptions of reflective practice postulate that a learner considers and ‘reflects’ on a need or a. Such en- dogenous construction differs sharply from learning (at least in the em- piricist sense) in that there is no empirical abstraction of information from the environment but rather a reflective abstraction of new structures via intercoordination of, and/or metacognitive reflection on, current struc- tures (Bickhard, ; Piaget, a, b).Cited by:.
