Simon's (1995) development of the construct of hypothetical learning trajectory (HLT) offered a description of key aspects of planning mathematics lessons. An HLT consists of the goal for the students' learning, the mathematical tasks that will be used to promote student learning, and hypotheses about the process of the students' learning. However, the construct of HLT provided no framework for thinking about the learning process, the selection of mathematical task, or the role of the… CONTINUE READING
