Exploring the Nature of Mathematical Activity: Using Theory, Research and 'Working Hypotheses' To Broaden Conceptions of Mathematics Knowing.
Boaler, Jo
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v51 n1-2 p3-21 2002
Investigates proficiencies when students work on mathematics problems and the extent captured by knowledge categories. Explores competency that goes beyond knowledge to include mathematical 'dispositions' and 'practices' in which students engage. Considers ways in which research knowledge is conceived and developed, reflecting upon the role of theory and the potential of 'working hypotheses' for connecting with practice. (Author/KHR)
