ABSTRACT
The article presents a reprint of the article "Transfer of Training and the Reconstruction of Experience," by Pedro T. Orata, which was published in the March 1937 issue of the periodical "Mathematics Teacher." Education, learning, democracy, and the like terms, all have their root in the assumption that transfer of learning is a fact. Students learn their mathematics not by discovering the answers or even by proving them, but by analyzing the parts and putting them together again in different patterns in order to arrive at a satisfactory solution. It should be remembered that transfer is never automatic except accidentally. For maximum transfer to occur, at least three processes should be provided: experience, continuity, and reconstruction.
