Özet

The aim of this study was to reveal the structure of mathematics classroom discussions about the concept of quadratic equations. The participants of this qualitative study are 10th grade students, and the data was collected through the classroom observations. Observations in a period of six courses, each of them approximately 45 minutes long, were analyzed through content analysis. In our findings, we noticed that listening to students' talks about their own mathematical experience provides a data base for investigating students' learning level on quadratic equations.
