Abstraction in Context (AiC) is a theoretical-methodological framework for studying students’ processes of construction of abstract mathematical knowledge as it occurs in a mathematical, social, curricular and learning-environment context. Using this framework, we have, for example, explained students’ inconsistent answers to closely related questions in elementary probability by considering the students’ partially correct constructs. In the colloquium, I will present a brief introduction to… CONTINUE READING
