Mathematical Discourse as Group Cognition

  • Gerry Stahl
Part of the Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning Series book series (CULS, volume 11)


This chapter reviews Anna Sfard’s book, Thinking as communicating: Human development, the growth of discourses and mathematizing (Sfard, 2008). It highlights insights of the book that are relevant to studying virtual math teams as well as calling for further analysis to situate Sfard’s theory within the discourses of CSCL and socio-cultural theory.
