Abstract

In this paper we propose a constructivistic approach to the Cartesian plane. We look at it as a linguistic-graphic structure grounded in a cognitive function recognizable in the natural drawings of children. Then we hypothize for it a development process following the same path as in Vygotskijan model for natural vs. scientific language. Finally, we present a teaching experiment whose intent is to provide some empirical evidence for our hypotheses.
