By Angelika Bikner-Ahsbahs, Christine Knipping, Norma Presmeg

This quantity files more than a few qualitative study techniques emerged inside of arithmetic schooling over the past 3 many years, while whilst revealing their underlying methodologies. carrying on with the dialogue as all started within the 2003 ZDM concerns devoted to qualitative empirical tools, this publication provides astate of the artwork evaluate on qualitative learn in arithmetic schooling and past. The constitution of the booklet permits the reader to exploit it as an exact consultant for the choice of an acceptable method, on a foundation of either theoretical intensity and sensible implications. The equipment and examples illustrate how assorted methodologies come to existence while utilized to a selected query in a selected context. the various methodologies defined also are acceptable outdoors arithmetic schooling, however the examples supplied are selected with the intention to situate the process in a mathematical context.

1). This term should not be confused with representative sampling as it is used in studies with large sample sizes opting to test hypotheses. According to Strauss and Corbin (1990, p. 177), theoretical sampling is “sampling on the basis of concepts that have proven theoretical relevance to the evolving theory”. This means that the concepts are relevant with respect to the developing theory as they repeatedly occur in the data, or, on the contrary, are notably absent when comparing the incidents (ibid).

Following this interpretation of theoretical sampling, I collected as much data as possible in both countries by having interviewed every student who volunteered. By this means, I generated a data set of 17 interviews per country. In addition, I kept the videotapes of all lessons I attended as well as the teaching materials used. Although I was interested in the personal view of the students on their learning process of mathematics, I wanted to be able to draw back on these materials if necessary throughout the analytical process.
