On Hands-On Material and Real-World Context
Abstract. Modelling and applications play a key role in mathematics education in order to develop quantitative thinking. Technology offers today great opportunities to deal with that development but a question arises: may technology substitute completely the classical role hands-on materials? We think the answer is no. We will review the interest of old and new hands-on materials, use of everyday life resources and contexts in today’s learning processes.
