The Catwalk Task: Reflections and Synthesis--Part 2
Vega, Emiliano; Hicks, Shawn
Journal of Mathematical Behavior, v27 n4 p255-263 2008
In this article we recount our experiences with a series of encounters with the catwalk task and reflect on the professional growth that these opportunities afforded. First, we individually reflect on our own mathematical work on the catwalk task. Second, we reflect on our experiences working with a group of community college students on the catwalk task and our interpretations of their mathematical thinking. In so doing we also detail a number of innovative and novel student-generated representations of the catwalk photos. Finally, we each individually reflect on the entire experience with the catwalk problem, as mathematics learners, as teachers, and as professionals. [For Part 1, see EJ837538.] (Contains 8 figures.)
