Some Remarks on Creating Mathematical Concepts.
Trzcieniecka-Schneider, Irena
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v24 n3 p257-64 1993
The author shows some causes of failure in the creation of mathematical concepts. One is the stiffening of concept cores, which prevents identification of atypical exemplars and solution of atypical problems and causes a bifurcation between the natural system of everyday concepts and the formal system of school concepts.
