"Doing|Mathematics": Analysing Data with/in an Enactivist-Inspired Approach
Maheux, Jean-François; Proulx, Jérôme
ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, v47 n2 p211-221 Apr 2015
In this paper, we emphasize the methodological challenges of analyzing data with/in an enactivist framework in which (1) all knowing is doing is being, while focusing on, (2) how an entry by the observer transforms usual ways of analyzing data. In this sense, the association of knowing with doing suggests a shift in attention away from what students might "know" toward attending to the active, dynamic, enacted mathematical activity as knowing, bringing to bear the local and emergent character of the mathematical activity. In addition to illustrating data analysis along those lines, we discuss the methodological significances and challenges of, and paradigm shifts required for, replacing questions of knowledge and acquisition with ones that concern "mathematical doing" alone.
