The Microevolution of Mathematical Knowledge: The Case of Randomness.
Pratt, Dave; Noss, Richard
Journal of the Learning Sciences, v11 n4 p453-88 2002
Explores the growth of mathematical knowledge and the relationship between abstraction and context. Builds on work to construct a viable model of the micro-evolution of mathematical knowledge in context whose central feature is the visibility of its mechanisms. Illustrates a case study of 10-11-year-old children's construction of meanings for randomness and the relationship between situation and emergence of new knowledge. (Author/KHR)
