Representation, Vision and Visualization: Cognitive Functions in Mathematical Thinking. Basic Issues for Learning.
Duval, Raymond
This paper focuses on some main distinctions that are necessary to analyze mathematical knowledge from a learning point of view and explain how many students come up against difficulties at each level of the curriculum. From a learning point of view, visualization cannot be used as an immediate and obvious support for understanding, even though it is the only relevant cognitive modality in mathematics.
