Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(11), 1238. Reviews the book, Children Designers: Interdisciplinary Constructions for Learning and Knowing Mathematics in a Computer-Rich School by Idit Harel (1991).

The design project lasted four months, involving the children in programming and fractions, design, user interface, representational and pedagogical issues.
