Young students exploring cardinality by constructing infinite processes

Abstract:

In this paper, we describe the design and implementation of computer programming activities aimed at introducing young students (9–13 years old) to the idea of infinity, and in particular, to the cardinality of infinite sets. This research was part of the WebLabs project where students from several European countries explored topics in mathematics and science by building computational models and programs, which they shared and discussed. We focus on a subset o...
