Abstract

Visualisation is a natural element at the root of mathematical thought, in the discovery of relations between mathematical objects, and in the transmission and communication of mathematics. This review focuses on the introductory chapter of one of the most famous books on this topic, by a widely published writer on pedagogy of mathematics, discussing at the same time implications for undergraduate teaching in the subject.
