A Social Extension of a Psychological Interest Theory
Bikner-Ahsbahs, Angelika
International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, Paper presented at the 27th International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education Conference Held Jointly with the 25th PME-NA Conference (Honolulu, HI, Jul 13-18, 2003), v2 p97-104
Based on an individual interest theory as a sensitising theory, empirical data are used to gain social interest concepts, as there are situated collective interest and interest-dense situation. These concepts serve as a basis for a social extension of a psychological interest theory. Its construction combines social interactions, the dynamic of epistemic processes and mathematical valency of situations in maths lessons. However, this paper is restricted to the presentation of results concerning social interactions. The construction process of theoretical interaction types is outlined and leads to a typology of interactions which provides the theoretical background for interaction analyses of interest-dense situations and their genesis processes.
