Sfard, Anna – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1991
This paper presents a theoretical framework for investigating the role of algorithms in mathematical thinking using a combined ontological-psychological outlook. The intent is to demonstrate that the processes of learning and of problem solving incorporate an elaborate interplay between operational and structural conceptualizations of the same…

Skovsmose, Ole – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1985
The relationship between mathematical education (ME) and critical education (CE) is considered. Three alternatives in ME are discussed: structuralism, pragmatism, and process-orientation. These are related to key terms of CE to show the extent to which ME and CE contradict each other: there is no integration between the two. (MNS)
