While zoltan dienes talks of six stages of learning, bruner talks instead of three modes of representation: the enactive, the iconic and the symbolic (if you like alliteration, think of doing, drawing, discussing. Dienes’ theory involves progressive stages to learning math, much like piaget’s theory of cognitive development piaget proposed that children learn best from concrete activities, similarly dienes’ theory also emphasized the importance of children learning through the use of manipulative materials (gningue, 2016.

Theoretical foundations for effective stem learning environments the ideas of john dewey, zoltan dienes, and richard lesh have influenced research and practice in science, mathematics, and engineering classrooms for quite some time. Zoltan dienes’ six-stage theory of learning mathematics by melanie clouthier on may 20, 2010 stage 1 most people, when confronted with a situation which they are not sure how to handle, will engage in what is usually described as “trial and error” activity what they are doing is to freely interact with the situation presented to them. Zoltan dienes subscribed to a lecture on implicit learning delivered to undergraduates at the university of sussex on 28 feb 2017 discusses how to determine the conscious or unconscious. It is an attempt to describe, analyze and apply dienes’ theory on how mathematical structures can be taught by applying his four principles of learning upon which he believed a teacher can base.

Description the fundamental concept of isomorphisms is often not formally introduced to students until more advanced, college-level mathematics courses such as calculus or real number analysis however, this delayed presentation should not lead mathematics educators to assume that students are unable to build an understanding of the idea as they construct these isomorphic relationships earlier. Zoltan dienes and jerome bruner, while generally espousing the views of piaget, have made contributions to the cognitive view of mathematics learning that are distinctly their own their work lends additional support to this point of view. Dienes's theory of mathematics learning has four basic components or principles each will be discussed briefly and its implications noted new light on the more subtle and as yet unanswered questions regarding the nature and role of manipulative materials in the learning of mathematical concepts dienes, zoltan p, and golding, edward. The name of zoltan p dienes (1916-) stands with those of jean piaget and jerome bruner as a legendary figure whose theories of learning have left a lasting impression on the field of mathematics education. Dienes’ stages of learning theory seeing mathematics as “a gold mine for an indefinite supply of games”, dienes went on to develop a six-stage theory for learning mathematics, with a focus on games.

Abstract zoltan dienes' principles of mathematical learning have been an integral part of mathematics education literature and applied both to the teaching and learning of mathematics as well as research on processes such as abstraction and generalization of mathematical structures. 41 the stages of learning as dienes the learning process is a process based on abstraction, generalization and communication this process of abstraction is to accurately analyze and dienes identifies six different stages in it.
