Abstract [en]

This article deals with two prominent topics in the field of mathematics education: the communication in mathematics and its teaching and learning and the continuous professional development of mathematics teachers. In this article, a framework is proposed for analysing the effectiveness of communication in mathematics classrooms. The presentation is based on data collected, during a 3-year period, while different objects of learning is presented in nine classes, and it includes 22 teachers and 884 students. Among other things, the data consist of the students’ tests, the teachers’ lessons plan and reports of the lessons’ instructions. In the analysis, concepts relating to variation theory have been used as analytical tools. The results show that effective communication occurs in the classroom if it has the real critical aspects in student learning as its starting point. Also, the results show that teachers develop new strategies to present the contents by having the focus to open up dimensions of variation.
