This publication is a made from love and admire.

Their invitation to me to jot down this Preface e- bles me to pay my respects to the nice guy, even supposing i'm most likely incurring his wrath for writing a Preface for his booklet with out his permission! I simply wish he knows the emotions of all colleagues engaged during this specific venture.

He had retired in 1975, yet after all he saved operating. Then in 1985 we were aiding him have fun his eightieth birthday, and even if I acknowledged in a piece of writing assertion in academic stories in arithmetic (ESM) on the time “we watch for him having fun with many extra years of non-retirement” i didn't count on to determine one other long manuscript.

Looking for essentials, that is looking within a context, which can mean within a situation and across situations within a problem and across problems within a procedure and across procedures within an organisation and across organisations within a scheme and across schemes within an algorithm and across algorithms within a structure and across structures within a formulation and across formulations within a symbolisation and across symbolisations within an axiomatic system and across axiomatic systems.

Are losing positions. Modulo 5, 1,3,4 are winning, and 0,2 are losing. Indeed, the player whose turn it is in the first kind of state can answer any move -1 by -4 and conversely, and thus preserve his state. The games proposed here show similar features to each other. What is the deeper nature of their similarity? Are they mere paradigms of a more general one and, if so, how to formulate this? Rather than starting paradigmatically in each case as we did, the usual way of presentation is to start with the final result in order to prove it -- the antididactical inversion.

So, as a curriculum designer, one arbitrarily invents things to do with sets, which have nothing to do with the need for sets in mathematics -- false concretisation and operationalisation;nor do these have anything to do with the need for learning -- false didactisation. At best there will be no effect at all -- sets and MATHEMATICS PHENOMENOLOGICALLY 29 other poor structures in elementary instruction are introduced with no other aim than to pay lipservice to the science structure. If these are but unfortunate slips, there are also more profound arguments against the precedence of poor over rich structures, even from the viewpoint of developmental psychology.
