Abstract

In this paper we propose a scheme for classifying the mathematical thinking facilitated by learning objects. With references to examples of existing learning objects, we describe four levels of mathematical thinking: 1 = recalling, 2 = applying, 3 = understanding, and 4 = extending. We then use these levels to briefly review and analyze findings from a study of 16 middle school students' mathematical thinking with level 3 learning objects. We then offer suggestions for modifying one of the learning objects used in the study, to increase its mathematical thinking potential to level 4. We also outline two forthcoming research projects that use the modified learning object.
