Chapter 6: The Problem Domain - Number Sequences

Version 0.92, 13 Nov., 2009

The purpose of this chapter is to inform theoretically the demonstrator study defined by Aim 3 in Chapter Three. It provides the motivation for number sequences as a curricular topic, considers some of the known challenges in this domain, and proposes some possible causes and remedies for them. The focus of this review is pragmatic: although it does aim to offer a theoretical contribution in this field, the main objective is to guide educational design. The resulting tools and activities are evaluated in Chapter Seven and systematised in Chapter Eight.
