ab: Summary: Students’ motives for learning mathematics cannot be understood
by looking solely at mathematical classroom activities. We discuss this
claim in a multicultural context using the notion of ‘landscapes of
learning’. This notion serves as a theoretical and methodological
tool that both defines a research perspective and sketches a field of
empirical research. In this paper we want to focus on the notion and
illustrate its usefulness when researching mathematical learning in
multicultural contexts. We draw on data and results of an empirical
study on student’s foregrounds with 45 teenage students in two 8th
grade multicultural classes in Denmark. We show the dialectical
relationship between each dimension of the landscape and the whole of
it; and how, as a whole, it can help us coming closer to better
theorisations.
