Our research aims to investigate on creativity and imagination as possible artifacts for maths learning. In particular, we aim to understand if fairy tales can be used as artifacts for trying to find out whether children had previous mathematical knowledge or not, and as tools for developing knowledge, skills and abilities in the creation of imaginary settings. In this paper we claim that there may be an edge between imagination and creation of a reality that can lead to achieve mathematical notions in a creative way.

Abstract

Our research aims to investigate on creativity and imagination as possible artifacts for maths learning. In particular, we aim to understand if fairy tales can be used as artifacts for trying to find out whether children had previous mathematical knowledge or not, and as tools for developing knowledge, skills and abilities in the creation of imaginary settings. In this paper we claim that there may be an edge between imagination and creation of a reality that can lead to achieve mathematical notions in a creative way.
