Previous studies have reported difficulties in analysing students’ argumentation. Especially the warrant, which connects data with claims, is found to be problematic to recognise. Weexamine how specific criteria for different forms of reasoning could decrease this difficulty. Instead of identifying warrants, we recognise whether students’ argumentation contains explicitly stated reasoning. We have developed an analysis method for recognising reasoning in argumentative talk. We collected video data from two mathematics lessons where students had to state claims about a mathematical situation and build convincing justification for their claims. The focus of analysis is in how the students articulated why the posed claim is true. Three cases illustrate how criteria for different forms of reasoning help in recognising whether the students articulate their reasoning.

Automated Checking of Flexible Mathematical Reasoning in the Case of Systems of (In)Equations and the Absolute Value Operator Valmari, Antti (SCITEPRESS - Science and Technology Publications, 2021)We present an approach and a tool for automatically providing feedback on solutions that involve complicated reasoning patterns. Currently the tool supports linear systems of equations and inequations that may also contain ...
Argumentation in the Context of High School Mathematics : Examining Dialogic Aspects of Argumentation Hähkiöniemi, Markus (Springer, 2022)In this chapter, I examine argumentation from the perspective of dialogic argumentation that highlights students’ engagement with each other’s ideas in the process of making mathematical claims and providing evidence to ...
Hähkiöniemi, Markus; Lehesvuori, Sami; Nieminen, Pasi; Hiltunen, Jenna; Jokiranta, Kaisa (Masarykova univerzita, 2019)Three dimensions of dialogicity are emphasised in the literature: dialogic teacher talk, students' dialogic moves and organising for dialogic teaching. In this article, we examine these dimensions and the interplay between ...
Lehesvuori, Sami; Hähkiöniemi, Markus; Jokiranta, Kaisa; Nieminen, Pasi; Hiltunen, Jenna; Viiri, Jouni (Masarykova univerzita, Filozofická fakulta, 2017)This paper reports on a teacher professional development (PD) programme addressing dialogic argumentation in mathematics and science classrooms. While argumentation skills are becoming more and more important in an ...
Hähkiöniemi, Markus; Hiltunen, Jenna; Jokiranta, Kaisa; Kilpelä, Jonathan; Lehesvuori, Sami; Nieminen, Pasi (Elsevier, 2022)In this study, we focus on dialogic argumentation among students in a whole class setting in mathematics and physics in lower secondary school. By drawing on previous studies on the structure of argumentation and dialogic ...
