dc.description.abstract In order to better understand the mathematics that preschool children engage in, we categorised the activities made available in one Swedish preschool. Although using Bishop’s 6 categories of mathematical activities and Walkerdine’s distinction between instrumental and pedagogical activities overcame some of our categorisation issues, they did not solve all of them. Some activities could be included in several categories which brought us back to a discussion about who was making what kinds of distinctions and for what purposes en_US
