Discourse That Promotes Conceptual Understanding.
Kazemi, Elham
Teaching Children Mathematics, v4 n7 p410-14 Mar 1998
Highlights a study that demonstrates what it means to press students to think conceptually about mathematics. Discusses similarities between classes--social norms--and differences between classrooms--sociomathematical norms. Concludes that, when teachers press hard for conceptual thinking, mathematics drives not only the activities but students' explanations as well. Suggests some action research ideas. (ASK)
