The Emergent Perspective in Rich Learning Environments: Some Roles of Tools and Activities in the Construction of Sociomathematical Norms.
Hershkowitz, Rina; Schwarz, Baruch
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v39 n1-3 p149-66 1999
Attempts to extend the range of application of the emergent perspective to middle and high school classrooms. Identifies some practices rooted in such rich environments from which several sociomathematical norms stemmed. Concludes that sociomathematical norms do not rise from verbal interactions only but also from computer manipulations as communicative, non-verbal actions. (Author/ASK)
