Our research focused on the analysis of face-to-face (FTF) social interaction of
groups working on maths problems using the GCC framework in traditional classroom setting.
The GCC framework requires students to analyze maths problems with "solutions" that
contained conceptual or oversight errors, critique these solutions with mathematical
arguments, and finally fix the "solutions" collaboratively. In this study, the GCC framework is
extended to the VMT chat medium which consists of a shared whiteboard, chat message box
and tools for students to construct mathematical representations. The analyses of these
sessions were based on the Collaboration Interaction Model (CIM), a model designed to study
the knowledge construction process of complex chat transcripts. This paper will discuss how
participants mediate shared understanding of mathematical representations and form
mathematical arguments to construct new knowledge in the chat medium, using the CIM as
the key instrument of analysis.
