In this chapter, young children’s mathematical reasoning is explored using two different frameworks. Two cases of reasoning are analysed and discussed in order to illustrate how the mathematical foundation is used in young children’s arguments and choices that they make when solving mathematical problems. The first framework focuses on arguments and warrants and is used to analyse individual reasoning. The second identifies strategy choices and categorises different types of reasoning that are developed in groups. In both frameworks, the mathematical foundation is central.
