The Social Construction of Mathematical Knowledge: Presented Problems in Mathematics Classrooms.
Stone, Lynda
Issues in Applied Linguistics, v7 n1 p119-33 Jun 1996
Examined how mathematical problems are articulated, i.e. identified and defined, in the context of a fifth-grade lesson on equivalent fractions. Notes that classroom discourse limited to serial tasks constrained students' opportunities to develop relational knowledge about the properties and principles of equivalent fractions.
