ion, everyday examples, construction of objects, and namingThere is a curious statement on page 163. In advocating a "tool-based" approach Confrey andCosta acknowledge that it would share a central feature with the ideas they are criticizing, towit, "asserting the importance of structure". But then they say, "However, (in a tool-based approach)rather than demanding departure from activity, the act of seeing similarities in structureacross different contexts would be the basis for...

    • ...Dubinsky claims that the construction of objects from processes is extremely tricky: “I … have often stated that one of the most important (and difficult) general mathematical activities consists in encapsulating processes to objects and deencapsulating objects back to the processes from which they came” (Dubinsky 1997)...
