Abstract: This paper explores the group dynamics among three groups of students involved in collaborative learning in mathematical modelling activities. It reports how group dynamics were established and their influence on the students' mathematical problem-solving endeavours. Through video analyses, discourse structures were identified to suggest the dominant roles students play within the group. Frequency counts of the discourse structures accounted for the group dynamics that shape the effectiveness of the learning that takes place in the groups. Implications from the findings are discussed.
