Explanation, Justification and Argumentation in Mathematics Classrooms.
Interest in mathematics learning that focuses on understanding, mathematical reasoning, and meaning-making underscores the need to develop ways of analyzing classrooms that foster certain types of learning. The goal of this paper is to show that the constructs of social and sociomathematical norms, which grew out of taking a symbolic interactionist perspective, provide a means to analyze aspects of explanation, justification, and argumentation in mathematics classrooms.
