Lesson play is a novel construct in research and teachersa professional development in mathematics education. Lesson play refers to a lesson or part of a lesson presented in dialogue formainspired in part by Lakatosas evocative Proofs and Refutationsafeaturing imagined interactions between a teacher and her/his students. We have been using and refining our use of this tool for a number of years and using it in a variety of situations involving mathematics thinking and learning. The goal of this proposed book is to offer a comprehensive survey of the affordances of the tool, the results of our studiesaparticularly in the area of pre-service teacher education, and the reasons that the tool offers such productive possibilities for both researchers and teacher educators.Calculators to the Rescue The next excerpt 8.19 is somewhat different in that it does not start with Sama#39;s strategy, but rather with teaching how to order ... You are starting to see how a simple calculation can show you which fraction is bigger .
