Abstract

This paper offers an account of a methodological approach to understanding and developing learning that has been successfully used in a research project on mathematical skills in workplaces. The approach is based on the concept of articulation work, which is concerned with the processes of coordination and integration by which different social worlds intersect and negotiations take place between them, and the role of symbolic boundary objects as mediators for negotiation.
