  • Engage with tasks around reasoning and proof and think about what makes a task challenging. We’ll share our experiences with using the tasks with preservice and in-service teachers as well as share how these tasks worked with the teachers’ students. We will discuss challenges in maintaining the high cognitive demand of the tasks while teaching.
