Preliminary Steps Toward Developing a Theory of Productive Use of Student Mathematical Thinking

Home / Presentation / Preliminary Steps Toward Developing a Theory of Productive Use of Student Mathematical Thinking
Abstract/Description:

Presentations consider (1) the nature of student thinking (ST) available to teachers during instruction, (2) teachers’ perceptions of productive use of ST, and (3) teachers’ abilities to recognize and respond to ST. The work will be discussed in the broader context of developing a theory of productive use of ST.
