About the Author

The Author: Lynn M. Gordon Calvert is Assistant Professor of Elementary Education at the University of Alberta. She received her Ph.D. in the area of mathematics education. Dr. Gordon Calvert has taught secondary school mathematics and currently works with preservice teachers and graduate students in mathematics education. She has authored and presented numerous papers on the topics of interaction and cognition in mathematics education.


I am very much excited about Lynn Gordon Calvert's new book. By developing the features of a discourse of mathematical conversation she opens a new way of thinking about mathematical knowing which is more in line with an embodied, coemergent, interactivist view of such knowing. Gordon Calvert provides readers with occasions to change and enrich their understandings of mathematics, its knowing and its teaching. (Tom Kieren, University of Alberta) What we gain from this book is an alternative way of looking at mathematical discourse. Gordon Calvert's treatment of mathematical conversation goes well beyond expanding current approaches to discourse. It provides a framework for reconceptualizing it and, in doing so, merges discourse and mathematics into an inseparable whole. (Erna Yackel, Purdue University Calumet)
