In this article, we question what is an appropriate balance of ordinal and cardinal work in the early learning of number. We see an over-emphasis, in current research and practice, on the cardinal that leads, for example, to only using small numbers. We report on empirical work we have carried out in the UK and Canada that suggests the potential…

The aesthetic dimension plays a central role in determining what mathematics proves personally and epistemologically relevant to children. Presents an example of a learning environment that attempts to explore this dimension and describes a small study that examined the responses of middle school students to this environment. (Contains 27…
