Connecting Research to Teaching: Lenses for Examining Students' Mathematical Thinking
Linsenmeier, Katherine A.; Sherin, Miriam; Walkoe, Janet; Mulligan, Martha
Mathematics Teacher, v108 n2 p142-146 Sep 2014
The authors present three strategies for making sense of students' mathematical thinking. These lenses make the abstract idea of "making sense of student thinking" more manageable and concrete. We start by taking an initial look at a student's idea, going deeper, and finally looking across several ideas.
