On Meaning Making in Mathematics Education: Social, Emotional, Semiotic
Seeger, Falk
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v77 n2-3 p207-226 Jul 2011
This paper is an attempt to add to the foundation of our understanding of meaning making in mathematics education. This attempt seems to be necessary as a growing body of research, primarily in developmental psychology, begins to change our view of early human development. Empathy, reciprocity, and implicit understanding seem to be more suitable concepts to describe human development and learning than the ones previously employed, based, e.g., on aggression as natural instinct or competitiveness as genetically wired basic drive.
