Discourse perspective of geometric thoughts. With a foreword by Anna Sfard. (English)
Perspektiven der Mathematikdidaktik. Wiesbaden: Springer Spektrum (ISBN 978-3-658-12804-3/pbk; 978-3-658-12805-0/ebook). xxiii, 232~p. (2016).
Publisher’s description: Sasha Wang revisits the van Hiele model of geometric thinking with Sfard’s discursive framework to investigate geometric thinking from a discourse perspective. The author focuses on describing and analyzing pre-service teachers’ geometric discourse across different van Hiele levels. The explanatory power of Sfard’s framework provides a rich description of how pre-service teachers think in the context of quadrilaterals. It also contributes to our understanding of human thinking that is illustrated through the analysis of geometric discourse accompanied by vignettes.
