Scott B. (2011) Thinking mathematically. In: B. Scott, (ed.) Explorations in Second Order Cybernetics: Reflections on Cybernetics, Psychology and Education. Vienna, echoraum. Fulltext at
This paper discusses the nature of mathematical thinking from the viewpoint of cognitive psychology. This is followed by a discussion of the practical needs and problems associated with mathematics teaching in Primary Schools. Some necessarily cautious and speculative recommendations are made. Where appropriate, reference is made to the literature on mathematics teaching and associated methods and materials. The author also has opportunity to refer to his own experiences as a teacher of mathematics, in a Primary School. Finally, there is a discussion of the emerging media in education and their likely impact on a new generation of teachers and pupils.
