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 interactions, we suggest that transparency of student reasoning and students' engagement with each other's ideas are two key aspects in dialogic argumentation. We examine what levels might exist in these key aspects and how they can exist simultaneously. We collected data by video recording mathematics and physics lessons in lower secondary school, and created a coding scheme for students' dialogic and justifying moves. By using the coding scheme, we recognized different kinds of argumentation with respect to how dialogic student–student interaction is and how transparently student reasoning is expressed. Furthermore, we found different ways how students can provide justifications as a dialogic reaction to others' ideas.

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 ...

Especially the warrant, which connects data with claims, is found to be problematic to recognise. Weexamine how specific criteria for ...
