abstract = {I begin the investigation of practice, introduce my school, my students, and my classroom, and frame the questions that have guided my inquiry with a description of a bit of my teaching. In this teaching, I used students’ work on a problem to direct their studies of important mathematical skills and ideas. There is nothing particularly special about the lesson I describe here—I could have started anywhere.In the room where I teach, the desks and chairs are usually arranged in groups of four or six, making “tables” at which students face one another. As the students sit in},
