Early Child Development and Care, v140 p53-71 Jan 1998
Examines three transcripts of preschool children's informal mathematical discourse during play to highlight the role of informal learning in young children's education. Considers the children's ability to adopt instructor, mediator and evaluator communication roles, to gain access to formal mathematics knowledge, and to use these to meet developmental and learning needs as part of a community of learning.
