Enactivism and Figural Apprehension in the Context of Pattern Generalisation
Samson, Duncan
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (33rd, Freemantle, Western Australia, Jul 3-7, 2010)
This paper seeks to establish a research framework for an investigation into the extent to which pupils are able to visualise figural cues in multiple ways within the context of pattern generalisation. Enactivism, along with the constructs of knowledge objectification and figural apprehension, are identified as forming an ideal theoretical framework for such a study. Although largely theoretically driven, this paper also presents results from an initial pilot study in order to contextualise the theoretical milieu. (Contains 3 figures.)
