Summary: The trivial fact that mathematics is a human activity is interpreted by viewing it as a semiotic activity with (systems of) signs and diagrams. Organizing learning as the progressive participation in this social practice with and on signs is deemed to make mathematics more accessible and intelligible and less often a cause of anxiety and frustration.
