Individual constructive activity: an experimental analysis
An experimental analysis of the claim that individual constructive activity is social was carried out using two categories of interactions; subjective-environment interactions and interactions of operations within the individual. The primary question of the analysis concerns the contribution of these two kinds of interaction to the individual construction of a mathematical scheme called the equi-partitioning scheme. It was found that interactions of operations within the individual were the principal interactions contributing to the construction of the scheme. It was further found that these interactions were occasioned by subject-environment interactions. But the subject-environment interactions could not be used to explain the individual construction of the scheme.
