Extending the coordination of cognitive and social perspectives

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Cognitive analyses are typically used to study individuals, whereas social
analyses are typically used to study groups. In this article, I make a
distinction between what one is looking with!one’s theoretical
lens!and what one is looking at!e.g., an individual or a group!. By
emphasizing the former, I discuss social analyses of individuals and
cognitive analyses of groups, additional analyses that can enhance
mathematics education research. I give examples of each and raise questions
about the appropriateness of such analyses.
