Semantic Innovation: Arithmetical and Algebraic Metaphors within Narratives of Learning.
Brown, Tony; Eade, Frank; Wilson, Dave
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v40 n1 p53-70 Oct 1999
Examines a theoretical perspective on the ways in which children progress in learning mathematics. Suggests that there is difficulty in associating teaching discourses with the mathematics they locate that can result in an incommensurability between alternative perspectives being offered. Resists attempts to privilege any particular account but rather demands an analysis of these discourses and their presuppositions. (Contains 27 references.) (Author/ASK)
