Summary

This paper defines what it means to be a community of learners in mathematics and examines this concept in light of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards. Robust sharing of mathematics, which is a way of analyzing student mathematical sharing in a community of learners, is presented here. Robust sharing of mathematics is defined along with analyses of episodes of this type of sharing among eighth grade students within a standards-based community of learners. Sources of data include videotaped observations of the classroom and audio taped discussions among the researchers and the teacher researcher. Results indicate that the concept of robust sharing of mathematics is a useful way in which to analyze student talk about mathematics. Future research questions are suggested by this work and pertain to: (1) the contributions the teacher makes to the robust learning of mathematics; (2) effective questioning strategies; (3) the range of roles that the students can take; (4) the role of curriculum in the robust learning of mathematics; and (5) the differences in the learning of active sharers and non-sharers. Contains 23 references. (DDR)
