RE: Refs on sociocultural interaction studies of math classrooms

Dear Angel—


I suggest looking for recent articles by Paul Cobb, Ellice Forman, Anna Sfard, Jim Greeno and their colleagues. Also, a few years ago, an interesting book was published on sociocultural issues of math education:


Atweh, B., Forgasz, H., & Nebres, B. (2001). Sociocultural research on mathematics education: An international perspective. Mahwah, N.J.: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates.

Good luck,



PS Let me know please if you find something else interesting …

Hi Angel.

You might want to take a look at a special double issue of this journal devoted to sociocultural issues:

 Schmittau, J., & Taylor, L. (Eds.) (1993), Focus on Learning Problems in Mathematics, 15(2,3), 29-39.

A colleague of mine is looking for recent sociocultural studies in interaction
analysis of math classrooms; any leads? Thanks in advance! :)
