The emergence of mathematical structures

  title={The emergence of mathematical structures},
  author={Stephen Hegedus and Luis Moreno–Armella},
  journal={Educational Studies in Mathematics},
We present epistemological ruptures that have occurred in mathematical history and in the transformation of using technology in mathematics education in the twenty-first century. We describe how such changes establish a new form of digital semiotics that challenges learning paradigms and mathematical inquiry for learners today. We focus on drawing analogies between the emergence of non-Euclidean geometry with recent advances in technological environments that are dynamic and interactive both… Expand
The emerging and emergent present: a view on the indeterminate nature of mathematics lessons
The notion of emergence has considerable currency in mathematics education. However, the notion tends to be used in a descriptive way rather than being theorized and developed as a phenomenon suiExpand
ICT and Liminal Performative Space for Hyperbolic Geometry’s Teaching
The use of technology tools creates new situations and new dynamics in Geometry’s teaching in the classroom, enhancing the ways of its understanding. In this chapter, the experience of using ICTExpand
Young Children Investigating Advanced Mathematical Concepts with Haptic Technologies: Future Design Perspectives
1. IntroductionIn this chapter, we focus on how new technologies can be used with young children to investigate mathematical ideas and concepts that would normally be introduced at a later age. InExpand
Visual Mathematics and Cyberlearning
This first book in the series will describe the Net Generation as visual learners who thrive when surrounded with new technologies and whose needs can be met with the technological innovations. TheseExpand
Foundations for the Future: The Potential of Multimodal Technologies for Learning Mathematics
We focus on how we expect students in a wide variety of age groups to be learning mathematics in a technology-enhanced environment in the future. This viewpoint will be grounded in our present workExpand
Theoretical Perspectives on Youngsters Solving Mathematical Problems with Technology
This chapter unveils a theoretical framework that aims to guide a better interpretation of students’ capability to solve mathematical problems with digital technologies, in the context of online mathematical competitions. Expand
Filosofía, matemáticas y educación: una perspectiva
In this article, based on epistemological approaches derived from activity theory, the authors argue in favor of a conception on the mathematical knowledge that positions the individual and socialExpand
Different Levels of Sophistication in Solving and Expressing Mathematical Problems with Digital Tools
This chapter offers a proposal for identifying levels of sophistication and robustness of technology-based solutions to the problems, according to the characteristics of the tool use and its connection to the conceptual models underlying students’ thinking on the problems. Expand
Socially Mediated Mathematical Strategies in a Dynamic Multi-Touch Geometry Environment
The study aims to investigate how 4th-grade children co-construct mathematical strategies for solving an Etchasketch-like activity using the Geometer’ Sketchpad® and the iPad. Expand
Measurement of Area and Volume in an Authentic Context: An Alternative Learning Experience Through Mathematical Modelling
This chapter shows the research results of the analysis of how Colombian Year ten students built mathematical models, through the measurement of area and volume, in the context of the flooding ofExpand


From static to dynamic mathematics: historical and representational perspectives
The nature of mathematical reference fields has substantially evolved with the advent of new types of digital technologies enabling students greater access to understanding the use and application ofExpand
Semiotics in mathematics education : epistemology, history, classroom, and culture
Current interest in semiotics is undoubtedly related to our increasing awareness that our manners of thinking and acting in our world are deeply indebted to a variety of signs and sign systemsExpand
Mathematical Epistemology from a Peircean Semiotic Point of View
Learning is better than knowing, generalization is more illuminating than abstract generality or universality because we perceive and thus become conscious of change or development only. Signs andExpand
The notion of chronicle as an epistemological obstacle to the concept of function
Abstract Variables are an important class of functions. In this article, the notion of chronicle is introduced as a variable that changes implicitly with time. It is argued that chronicles form aExpand
Theory of didactical situations in mathematics
ion is not inevitable. In fact, shopkeepers have never abstracted the structures of modules which regulate their financial exchanges because they haven’t the motivation to do so. Schematization andExpand
Studying new forms of participation and identity in mathematics classrooms with integrated communication and representational infrastructures
Wireless networks are fast becoming ubiquitous in all aspects of society and the world economy. We describe a method for studying the impacts of combining such technology with dynamic,Expand
The constitution of space perception: a phenomenological perspective.
Although Husserl was strongly influenced by the ‘motor’ theorizing popular at his time, his pioneer achievement consisted in the description of visual flow patterns arising from movements in the environment and movements of the perceiver. Expand
The essential Peirce : selected philosophical writings
This convenient two-volume reader's edition makes accessible to students and scholars the most important philosophical papers of the brilliant American thinker Charles Sanders Peirce. Volume 2Expand
Humanities students and epistemological obstacles related to limits
The article presents a report on four 45 minute sessions with a group of 17 year old humanities students. These sessions were the first of a series organised with the aim of exploring theExpand
