Abstract

This paper extends the earlier doctoral work of the first author into the field of workplace training. Through developing the theoretical notion of ‘folding back' within the Pirie-Kieren Theory, and using intensive video-data it focuses on the ways in which an apprentice pipe trades worker is able to develop images and understandings of multiplication and fractions. It builds capacity in the under-researched area of adult learning, offers a detailed theoretical explanation for the growth of mathematical understanding in the workplace and has implications for workplace education. It was blind peer reviewed. As first author Martin contributed 80% of the content.
