The Open University has produced a series of mathematics education courses that use experiential learning as part of their ethos. The following account reconstructs Chris’s experience working on a mathematical problem from Developing Thinking in Geometry (ME627), with John Mason acting as mentor via e-mail, over a space of six days. This account is assembled, and clarified, based on e-mails and memory. CJ and JM refer respectively to remarks made during the exchange, or while assembling this account.
