These analyses form part of a three-year project* looking at mathematical
thinking as a socially organised activity. We revisit data from a University Calculus
class using tools from two theoretical perspectives, used increasingly in mathematics
education research: (1) semiotic mediation and (2) discursive practices. We highlight
how different theory-driven analyses taking a sociocultural view of thinking and
learning can offer insights into the conceptualisation of the 'transfer' of learning.
