Scholarcy highlights

  • Task Influences on Students’ Collaboration in Mathematics Teaching
  • Earlier research has demonstrated that the task has an influence on the group processes and the group members’ interaction
  • Four group work sessions were documented with a video camera and we found that students’ different ways of experience a mathematical task affect the interactions processes, quality talk and certain social modes of thinking
  • The results show that teachers’ settings of the problem and how the students manage the interaction processes in the group were important to what competencies students were exposed to and what they thereby were able to learn
