Building Bridges: Reflections on the Problem of Transfer of Learning in Mathematics.
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v39 n1-3 p23-44 1999
Analyzes why the transfer of formal learning to outside school situations is problematical in principle and undependable in practice. Recommends an alternative approach for building bridges between practices based on analyzing the discourses involved as a system of signs and looking for appropriate points of inter-relation between them.
