A number of studies have shown the effectiveness of the constructivist approach in teaching and learning in contrast to the traditional drilling and reciting approach (Hmelo-Silver, Duncan, & Chinn, ; Steele, ). A study by Steele, () on “A construct visit Approach to mathematics teaching and learning..” r evealed that using File Size: KB. Constructivism is a theory about learning and knowledge that finds its roots with theorists such as Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky. Constructivist learning environments are student-centered where students. take charge of their learning, utilizing the teacher as a guide. Students construct their own meaning of concepts byAuthor: Sarah Connors. Joke Voogt, Petra Fisser, in International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences (Second Edition), ICT-Enhanced Learning Environments in the Curriculum. Several ICT-enhanced learning environments designed from a constructivist approach to learning have been studied for more than 15 years and have shown the potential of ICT to support student learning. of construction even in situations of so-called rote learning. I will return to the problems this raises for constructivist teaching when I discuss the connection between activity and learning, but for now it is enough to note that constructivists in mathematics education do not disagree with Neisser's description of cognitive activity.

(eds) Radical Constructivism in Mathematics Education. Mathematics Education Library, vol by: Constructivism is a theory in education that recognizes the learners' understanding and knowledge based on their own experiences prior to entering school. It is associated with various philosophical positions, particularly in epistemology as well as ontology, politics, and ethics. The origin of the theory is also linked to Jean Piaget's theory of cognitive development.

constructivist view of learning is a considerable challenge, one that the mathematics education community bas only begun to tackle. Although constructivism provides a useful framework for thinking about mathematics learning in classrooms and there-fore can contribute in important ways to the effort to reform classroom mathematics.

The Constructivist Approach to Mathematics Teaching and the Active Learning Strategies used to Enhance Student Understanding. Abstract. Some mathematics educators take the constructivist approach when it comes to their idea of the perfect classroom. They believe that actively engaging students in learning is the most productive means of by: 3.   Most students agree that the constructivist approach allows for a better development of conceptual understanding regarding arithmetic sequences. Some students, though, contend that the traditional method is preferable since it can be completed faster. Naturally, the members of this class are among the success stories in mathematics education.
