Part I Commentary 2: Visualization in School Mathematics Analyzed from Two Points of View

  • A. Gutiérrez
Chapter
Part of the Research in Mathematics Education book series (RME)

Abstract

Researchers on educational psychology and mathematics education have different approaches to visualization, but there are relevant links between them. The chapters in this book illustrate some of those links. The present text is a reflection, made with the mathematics education eyes, on some chapters in this book presenting educational psychology points of view.
