The emergence of mathematical structures

  title={The emergence of mathematical structures},
  author={Stephen J. 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… 

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 sui

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. In

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. These

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 work

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.

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 social



From static to dynamic mathematics: historical and representational perspectives

The evolution of symbolic thinking over time is analyzed, from static notations to dynamic inscriptions in new technologies, and new perspectives on Kaput’s theory of notations and representations as mediators of constructive processes are concluded.

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 systems

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 and
