Abstract : In 2006, the Norwegian government added mathematics and technology as a subject in the national guidelines for kindergartens in Norway. The activity in this case is a visualisation task about the connection between 2D and 3D shapes. The activity starts with a short introduction from one of the researchers, where she together with children explored different 3D shapes with collapsible folding shapes. After a while, iPads were taken into the activity, using an application where they could see 3D shapes fold and unfold. The activity lasted for around 50 minutes where the children freely combined the work on the concrete folding shapes and the ones at the iPads. Preliminary findings indicate that the children were focused on the appearance more than the characteristics of the shapes. Further, technology gave some new opportunities, but also some limitations due to tactile feelings.
