The Catwalk Task: Reflections and Synthesis--Part 1
Case, Steven
Journal of Mathematical Behavior, v27 n4 p250-254 2008
In this article I recount my experiences with a series of encounters with the catwalk task and reflect on the professional growth that these opportunities afforded. First, I reflect on my own mathematical work on the catwalk task, including my efforts to fit various algebraic models to the data. Second, I reflect on my experiences working with a group of high school students on the catwalk task and my interpretations of their mathematical thinking. Finally, I reflect on the entire experience with the catwalk problem, as a mathematics learner, as a teacher, and as a professional. (Contains 3 figures.) [For Part 2, see EJ837539.]
