Summary

The reader is invited into classrooms to observe students engaged in mathematical activity: second graders hypothesizing about even and odd numbers; third graders demonstrating commutativity of multiplication; sixth graders puzzling over the mysteries of fractions. In each situation, the authors consider the teacher's intentions in designing the activity, the instructional decisions she makes as the children engage it, and her reflections afterward.
