[Xmca-l] Re: Intrinsic motivation?



Maria,

Yes, I hypothesise that what we learn is determined by how we learn (in
mathematical contexts).  The project investigates aspects of this relation.

I take an interest in (the limitations of) generalisation of mathematical
notation, as opposed to generalisations of mathematical construal stemming
(in origin) from meanings embodied in culturally appropriate tasks.  I am
looking at the relation between activity and memory and the formation of
mathematical concepts (fractions), and take an interest in how such
concepts may be used creatively depending upon the manner in which they
have been acquired.

Best,
Huw
