Paths of learning—the joint constitution of insights
Kapitel i bok, 2012

In a junior school in a Stockholm suburb four groups of 11-year-olds are pondering a task given to them in writing (Wistedt and Martinsson, 1996, p. 176): Charlie ponders, and so do the other children. In three consecutive questions given in a small, illustrated booklet they are asked to give answers to the question: Exactly how big a part is needed for each of (A) the advent candle-sticks, (B) the small candlesticks, and (C) the bookends? The pupils are asked to give their answers in decimal form.
