Observing Children’s Mathematical Problem Solving with 21st C Technology
Written by Prof. Thomas O'Brien on Friday, 10 March 2006
/thscreenshot2.gif ABSTRACT

Inference — the deriving of information with logical certainty — is at the heart of mathematical thinking. Indeed, it can be argued that inference is at the heart of thinking in general (Piaget, 1987; Bruner, 1968). The new technology, Personal Data Assistants (PDAs), provides anywhere, any time access to the Internet and provides a portable tool for developing and enhancing learning, including the development of inference making capabilities in environments that, for reasons of cost or space, are not suitable for “traditional” PCs.
