The article discusses a series of tasks in which robotic toys such as Pro-bots and Bee-bots are used as tools to develop the mathematical and metacognitive skills of young children. It states that the tasks provide motivating contexts to engage children in multiple mathematical processes and promote meaningful learning. It suggests that the inter-relating and integrating concepts, multifaceted approach, skills and processes through the dynamic tasks could promote rich mathematical thinking.
