* Narrative (dutch)

Contents

General

A narrative is a construct created in a suitable medium (speech, writing, images) that describes a sequence of real or unreal events. It derives from the Latin verb narrare, which means "to recount" and is related to the adjective gnarus, meaning "knowing" or "skilled".

The word "story" may be used as a synonym of "narrative", but can also be used to refer to the sequence of events described in a narrative. A narrative can also be told by a character within a larger narrative.

Narratives and mathematical thinking

The Freudenthal institute conducted research in 2005-2009 about the use of Picture books (Van den Heuvel-Panhuizen, 2008)

Narratives and games

Narratives may play an important role in mathematical games for motivational purposes.
