Abstract [en]

Explanations are an integral part of mathematics education in primary school. This paper investigates some of the possible functions of explanations according to curriculum documents in Israel and Sweden and provides a way of classifying those functions. Findings indicated that explanations may have several various functions depending on the context in which they are requested or given.
