FERRUZZI, Elaine Cristina  and  WERLE DE ALMEIDA, Lourdes Maria. Dialogical interactions in Mathematical Modeling activities. Rev. electrón. investig. educ. cienc. [online]. 2012, vol.7, n.1, pp.32-48. ISSN 1850-6666.

In this paper we present a part of the results of a research in which we investigated the potential of Mathematical Modeling for the establishment of interactions with characteristics considered learning generating. In face of the importance given to the communication in Mathematical Modeling activities and classroom interactions, we investigated the interactions that emerge during the development of Mathematical Modeling activities and tried to identify interactions classified by some researchers with the greatest potential for learning. The results we present derive from an analysis under the lights of the discourse classification presented by Mortimer and Scott (2002) of the Modeling activities carried out by a group of Environmental Engineering students. From this analysis we have concluded that the characteristics of Mathematical Modeling in the classroom propitiate the student's active participation, contributing to the establishment of learning generating interactions
