"Can Any Fraction Be Turned into a Decimal?" A Case Study of a Mathematical Group Discussion.
O'Connor, Mary Catherine
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v46 n1-3 p143-85 2001
Examines two days of teacher-led large group discussion in a 5th grade class about a mathematical question intended to support student exploration of relationships among fraction and decimal representations and rational numbers. Illuminates the teacher's work in supporting student thinking through the use of a mathematical question embedded in a position-driven discussion. (Author/MM)
