This paper is based on a study that compares how student groups from three different cultural contexts solve the same mathematical problem. In this paper, the focus is on the methodology. More specifically, we describe the use of flowcharts and intention analysis to reveal important qualities in student discussions. The aim is to show how these tools may support the analyses of students’ mathematical discussion. We also emphasise the shortcomings of the tools in the light of our experiences from the study. We show that in order to better understand why certain interaction happens, it is important to extend the analysis to contextual factors.
