Abstract

This study examines the role of off-task participation in collaborative mathematics problem-solving among fourth graders. Results show that majority of instances served productive functions in relation to the collaborative problem-solving process. These functions include: warming up to the collaboration, gaining the attention of others, gaining access to the collaboration for self, recruiting others into the collaboration, extending the task, and resisting concentrated authority.
