Pease A, Guhe M, Smaill A. Developments in research on mathematical practice and cognition. Top Cogn Sci. 2013;5(2):224-30.
We describe recent developments in research on mathematical practice and cognition and outline the nine contributions in this special issue of topiCS. We divide these contributions into those that address (a) mathematical reasoning: patterns, levels, and evaluation; (b) mathematical concepts: evolution and meaning; and (c) the number concept: representation and processing.
