Even though there exist a large body of research into understanding children’s learning of math, little research has been directed to how interdisciplinary subjects in combination with material hands-on manipulation can afford mathematics learning opportunities. Architecture exemplifies such an interdisciplinary subject embracing more than just the design of buildings and includes tangible activities. Thus, in architecture as a subject, there are many different topics that can be addressed and used as a way of understanding other topics - both theoretically and tangibly.
