Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


First, Maths Didactics is presented as an independent and inter-disciplinary area of study still under development, with its own theoretical and practical field. Then, didactic theories on mathematics education during the past 30 years are described, with a special emphasis on psychological factors explaining different trends. Finally, the article summarizes different lines of work taking shape within research into Mathematics Education, with particular attention paid to studies on the cognitive processes involved in learning mathematical concepts. From a social viewpoint, there are brief references to the study of mathematical behaviour and maths learning. © 1993, Taylor and Francis Group, LLC. All rights reserved.
