CitationLeslie Dietiker, Andrew Richman, Aaron Brakoniecki, Elyssa Miller. 2016. "Woo! Aesthetic variations of the "same" lesson." Proceedings of the 38th annual meeting of the North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education (pp. 66-73). Tucson, AZ: The University of Arizona.
Efforts to enhance the aesthetic impact of mathematics lessons must account for the role of teachers in shaping the unfolding mathematical content of their enacted lessons. In this paper, we draw from Dietiker (2015) to describe differences in the mathematical stories of the enacted lessons of two veteran teachers teaching the same lesson. We identify connections between these differences and the variations in student experiences as illustrated by visible student reactions.
