Abstract

In this report we advance the methodological and theoretical networking for documenting
individual and collective mathematical progress. In particular, we draw together two approaches,
Abstraction in Context (AiC) and Documenting Collective Activity (DCA). The coordination of
these two approaches builds on prior analysis of grade 8 students working on probability problems
to highlight the compatibility among the epistemic actions that ground each approach and drive the
respective methodologies. The significance of this work lies in its contribution to coordinating what
might otherwise be viewed as separate and distinct methodologies.
