Abstract

Ten hours of whole group discussions in a US Grade 5 classroom were analysed to identify teacher interventions aimed to stabilize student work on modelling tasks and the type of mathematical actions those interventions provoked. Analysis of group interactions highlights that teacher interventions impacted students’ reasoning, structuring, and mathematizing processes. These processes corresponded to the stages of the modelling cycle, including interpreting, structuring, working mathematically, and validating ideas.
