Drawing on findings from recent studies, this talk will describe social interactions that are linked to how students develop their identities in collaborative classrooms. In particular, the talk will focus on: collaborative problem-solving, positioning and how students negotiate who they are and can become when doing mathematics together. The talk will close with a discussion of classroom practices that foster robust connections between identity, engagement and learning mathematics.
