Abstract

This paper reports on efforts to characterise levels of mathematical sophistication for students in collaborative mathematics problem solving. Using a laboratory classroom in Australia, data were captured with multiple cameras and audio inputs. Students worked individually, in pairs, and in small groups (4 to 6 students). We focused on investigating collaborative work, with the goal of studying the mathematical sophistications of students’ reasoning when solving problems. Drawing from two analytical frameworks to document the mathematical sophistication in students’ exchange, levels of cognitive demands and mathematical practices, this research highlights different aspects of students’ reasoning in solving these tasks.
