Abstract [en]

In this paper we propose and discuss a framework for analysing adults’ work competences while construing mathematics-containing “themes” between workplaces within the sectors of vehicle and transport, and nursing and caring. In the methodology we adopt a multimodal approach where all forms of communicative resources (e.g., body, speech, tools, symbols) are taken into account. We also incorporate the institutional norms of workplace activities into the analysis. We position the framework within a multimodal social-semiotic perspective and we also draw on a connected model where the institutional framing is present: a learning design sequence (Selander, 2008). Within this frame we understand learning as communication within a domain, which enables us to adopt concepts concerned with functions that operate within communications. A tentative theme, Measuring:precision through function and time, is described and we illuminate how informal resourses for measuring provide efficiency and function.
