Open peer commentary on the article “Random Walks as a Royal Road to E-STEAM in Math Education” by Amaranta Valdés-Zorrilla, Daniela Díaz-Rojas, Leslie Jiménez & Jorge Soto-Andrade. Abstract: I claim that mathematics is constructed with the ambition of allowing for absolute agreement. Dealing with students’ thinking that deviates from the supposedly absolute agreement is a key problem for mathematics teaching. Some sources for such deviant thinking include the relationship between mathematics and modelled reality, and the “imaginary” nature of probability.
