On Reform Movement and the Limits of Mathematical Discourse.
Sfard, Anna
Mathematical Thinking and Learning, v2 n3 p157-89 2000
Takes a critical look at some popular ideas about teaching mathematics that are forcefully promoted worldwide by the reform movement. Presents a theoretical analysis illustrated with empirical examples on the nature and limits of mathematical discourse. Focuses on the question of how far to go in renegotiating and relaxing the rule of mathematical discourse before seriously affecting its learnability. (Contains 68 references.) (Author/ASK)
