We first distinguish between the school mathematics tradition typically established in textbook-based classrooms and the inquiry mathematics tradition established in classrooms where instruction is compatible with constructivism. We then focus on the inquiry mathematics tradition and consider the theoretical and pragmatic tensions inherent in the view that mathematical learning is both a process of active individual construction and a process of acculturation. Particular attention is given to the ways in which both constructivist and sociocultural theorists address this issue. Finally, we discuss the development of instructional activities for inquiry mathematics classrooms.
