 ‘Language-as-resource’ in multilingual mathematics activities: an epistemological framework

8-13
 ABSTRACT:

In this, paper we attend to epistemological potentials of multilingual language use and mathematics in connection to the ‘language-as-resource’ idea and how the idea is actualised in Swedish mathematics education contexts. In this paper we develop and propose a framework for considering different epistemological potentials for multilingual mathematics activities that are embedded in the ‘language-as-resource’ idea.
