Interweaving Mathematics and Pedagogy in Task Design: A Tale of One Task
Liljedahl, Peter; Chernoff, Egan; Zazkis, Rina
Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, v10 n4-6 p239-249 Dec 2007
In this article we introduce a usage-goal framework within which task design can be guided and analyzed. We tell a tale of one task, the Pentomino Problem, and its evolution through predictive analysis, trial, reflective analysis, and adjustment. In describing several iterations of the task implementation, we focus on mathematical affordances embedded in the design and also briefly touch upon pedagogical affordances.
