Abstract

Describes two studies which are both examples of communication and its effect on mathematics teaching. The first looks at language as mediating in peer relations as students work in small groups on problem solving activities. The second study looks at how teachers in their classroom communication define the nature of mathematics and how students are to engage in it.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
