Mathematical thinking: studying the notion of 'transfer'.
Carreira, S. and Evans, Jeff and Lerman, S. and Morgan, Candia (2002) Mathematical thinking: studying the notion of 'transfer'. In: 26th International Conference of Psychology of Mathematics Education Group (PME-26), 21-26 August, 2002, University of East Anglia, Norwich.
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.
