The Learning of Recursive Algorithms from a Psychogenetic Perspective

Sylvia da Rosa

The ideas presented in this paper concern computer science education research within Jean Piaget’s theory genetic epistemology. Results from Piaget and collaborators investigations about the recursive reasoning on the series of natural numbers are extended to learn about entering students recursive reasoning on other inductively defined structures. In this paper the main aspects of that extension are described using a selected example.
