ab: Summary: During an informal, after-school, math program, a group of middle
school students worked collaboratively on open-ended problems. The
students co-constructed arguments, provided justifications for their
solutions, and engaged in mathematical reasoning. This paper describes
the specific teacher moves that promoted this phenomenon. The findings
of this study indicate that through carefully planned interventions,
the teachers created a mathematical community with norms that included
listening, sharing, explaining ideas, creating, questioning, revising
justifications and using multiple forms of reasoning. These established
norms resulted in the detection of student autonomy.
