The Concept of Invariance in School Mathematics
Libeskind, Shlomo; Stupel, Moshe; Oxman, Victor
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v49 n1 p107-120 2018
In this paper, we highlight examples from school mathematics in which invariance did not receive the attention it deserves. We describe how problems related to invariance stimulated the interest of both teachers and students. In school mathematics, invariance is of particular relevance in teaching and learning geometry. When permitted change leaves some relationships or properties invariant, these properties prove to be inherently interesting to teachers and students.
