In this chapter the notion of binary operation is studied in some detail to provide teachers with an understanding of and an appreciation for the comp]exity of this concept. To do this we abstract the ideas to situations in which your lifelong experience with the ideas is not applicab]e, thus causing you to examine in detail the various aspects of binary operations.

The final response is shown in Fig. 8. 1 For other ideas regarding activities that will help children become aware of these operations, see the references to Dienes and Golding in the Bibliography section on Methods of Teaching Elementary Mathematics.
