Intensive quantities: why they matter to mathematics education
Ever since Piaget's (1952) classic work on number, a fundamental distinction has been drawn in the mathematics literature between extensive and intensive quantities. Extensive quantities (for example, volume, distance) are based on the logic of part-whole relations. Adding 20 decilitres of orange squash to 60 decilitres produces 80 decilitres of orange squash, since the whole is the sum of the parts. Intensive quantities (for example, density, speed) are based on the logic of co-variation. Addin
