Dr. Saenz-Ludlow – Colloquium

Join us on Monday, February 25th for a colloquium hosted by Dr. Adalira Saenz-Ludlow of University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The title of her talk is, ” Are Diagrams Conceptualizing Tools?”

Event: Feb. 25th, 3:00 pm in Aderhold room 229

Abstract: The colloquium will focus on the nature of diagrams and diagrammatic reasoning from the semiotics of Charles Sanders Peirce. What are the elements of Peircean SIGNS and why are they dynamic and evolving? Why do SIGNS depend on subjectivity without leaving behind objectivity? What kind of SIGNS are diagrams and what kind of reasoning do they mediate?  Examples from the mathematical activity of children and teachers as well as from the history of mathematics will shed light on diagrams as conceptualizing tools.
