Abstract

The research shared in this presentation consists of a subset of findings from a research project conducted in a local middle school math classroom. This qualitative case study uncovers ways in which students make use of structure to understand the underlying organization of patterns they observe in functional relationships. Participants will learn how discourse analysis reveals moments of collective meaning making in math classrooms. Such an analysis sheds light on orchestrating instructional sequences in the classroom.
