Description/Abstract

The paper presents findings from a project which explored 6-7 year old children’s understanding
and use of addition principles when solving problems. Thirty three children with different
abilities in arithmetic were presented with pairs of problems which were conceptually linked by
the principles of commutativity, associativity and additive composition. The paper discusses the
similarities and differences observed in the problem solving approaches of three cases: a very
able child and two children identified as having difficulties in learning arithmetic
