practical and theoretical view of the way in which embodiment is translated
into symbolism by representing the effect of actions as symbols that may
then be manipulated as mental concepts.*

Also available from** ** http://www.bsrlm.org.uk/IPs/ip25-1/BSRLM-IP-25-1-Full.pdf**. How the difficulties
of vector concepts are perceived by Mathematics and Physics Teachers and how
this challenges the National Curriculum Approach to the topic.**
