The research aims to set the foundation for the understanding of the mathematics instruction in the institutional setting of a Korean middle school classroom. To fulfill this purpose, we focused on understanding the types and characteristics of participation structure created by class participants' interaction. One second grade middle school mathematics class was adopted for participant observation and long-term data was collected and analyzed. We have discovered several distinct types of social participation structure based on literature review and the criteria drawn from the comprehensive analysis of the characteristics of the teacher's and students' interaction and behavior.
