Social unit of learning: Dyadic and small group interactions in mathematics

Mathematics Education Research Seminar Series 2016

This presentation reports research conducted in a laboratory classroom, where intact classes of students were filmed responding to carefully crafted and delivered mathematical tasks in order to investigate modes of social interaction during collaborative problem solving. A variety of data types will be shown, including physiological bio-marker data, and discussion will centre on contemporary developments in the investigation of the function of social interactions in classroom learning.
