Abstract: We provide a description of the mathematical activity of students in a classroom, highlighting the different types of engagement that are enlisted, the mathematical understanding of two students (using the Pirie/Kieren model) and their role within their respective groups. Our goal is to better understand some of the many factors that can influence the way in which students react to criticism by their peers.
