Cooper, Thomas J., Atweh, Bill, Baturo, Annette R., & Smith, R (1993) Higher-intellectual functioning, empowerment and oral communication in mathematics instruction. In Stephens, M., Waywood, A., Clarke, D., & Izard, J. (Eds.) Communicating Mathematics: Perspectives from Classroom Practice and Current Research. Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER), Hawthorn, Victoria, pp. 1-25.
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.
