Question description

Context influences children’s performance in mathematics. This was illustrated in Carraher and colleagues’ (1985) classic study of Brazilian street vendors. Describe the method and results of Carraher and colleagues’ study, and discuss how the results support the claim that children’s mathematical problem-solving performance depends on context. Do you feel that these findings can also be applied to other academic areas?  Provide a specific example of how a classroom teacher might use this research to facilitate learning in the classroom.
