Learning mathematics has always involved certain ways of moving the body, often with pencils on paper. Recent technologies engages the body in new ways, enabling learners and teacher to express and mathematics through actions and gestures. In this talk, I will explore how theories of embodiment are changing the way we think about mathematics learning and even mathematics itself. I will then show how these theories can explain the potential for multitouch digital tools to re-configure students’ and teachers’ experiences with mathematical concepts—and in particular, with the concept of multiplication, which represents a turning point in the curriculum in terms of access to topics such as ratio, proportion and algebra.
