Planting Seeds of Mathematical Abstraction
We consider that elementary students' situated activities with geometric transformations and animation contain the seeds of complex, and eventually, mathematically generalizable and abstract reasoning. Further studies can explore such technologically-based activities' potential as building blocks for flexible, creative, and formalized knowledge.
