To What Extent Might Role Play Be a Useful Tool for Learning Mathematics?
Mathematics Teaching, n230 p17-20 Sep 2012
To most children in primary school role-play is just something you do, and something you enjoy. It is part-and-parcel of being at school, part of the normal classroom activity. So, why can it not just be a normal part of learning mathematics? Can we study learners "in role", and make judgments about what they learn, and how they learn? This is the start of a study to investigate the possibilities.
