Saxe (1991) to illustrate how the mathematical problems that emerge in children's play of Monopoly are interwoven with their developing competencies and social interactions. Findings from six groups of four children each, ranging in age from 8 to 14 years, show that the mathematics that emerged during play resulted from many factors. (SLD)
