Towards a Model of Language Shifts in Mathematics Learning.
Chapman, Anne
Mathematics Education Research Journal, v9 n2 p152-73 Sep 1997
Reports on a study of the relationship between language and learning in school mathematics. Argues that learning mathematics requires transformational shifts between "less mathematical" language and "more mathematical" language. Proposes a model where mathematical meanings are constructed within the shift toward increasingly mathematical language. Contains 18 references. (Author/ASK)
