Open peer commentary on the article “Problematizing: The Lived Journey of a Group of Students Doing Mathematics” by Robyn Gandell & Jean-François Maheux. Abstract: Gandell and Maheux present an interesting analysis of the problem posing (PP) and problem solving (PS) of a group of students playing a throwing game. The analysis builds on recent studies that explain how PP and PS co-evolve as students interpret and ultimately complete the tasks that we give them. I will make some preliminary comments on the researchers’ enactivist approach to studying PP and PS, draw some comparisons with constructivist approaches, and then comment on the analysis of the student work.
