Summary: This small scale action research doctoral study aims to deepen understanding of how children can be supported to notice and use mathematically relevant ideas in the course of their class-based mathematical activity. The focus is on supporting and encouraging ways to look rather than dictating what to see. I employ the theoretical lens of ecological psychology to develop a framework to analyse the affordances of children’s tasks and of classroom dialogue in stimulating mathematical noticing. In this study, noticing is positioned as a particular type of mathematical engagement; this paper focuses on the development and early use of an analytic tool.
