Interpreting students' reasoning through the lens of two different languages of description: integration or juxtaposition?
2010 (English)In: Proceedings of the Sixth Congress of the European Society for Research in Mathematics Education: January 28th - February 1st 2009 / [ed] Viviane Durand-Guerrier; Sophie Soury-Lavergne; Ferdinando Arzarello, Institut National de Recherche Pédagogique , 2010, 1555-1564 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This contribution exemplifies the interpretation of a common set of data by using two languages of description originating from different theoretical perspectives. One account uses categories from a psychological and the other from a sociological perspective. The interpretations result in different explanations for the students' struggles with sense making. However, the results cannot be integrated into a combined insight, but only be juxtaposed.
