subject: Students' understandings...
I was actually most enamored with the discussion of the value of voting
- a common practice in mathematics classrooms in effect replacing the
"teacher as assessor" !

These kids seem to be developing (at various stages) an understanding
that the answers lie in the mathematical reasoning not in the teacher
or majority vote - a crucially important understanding to develop.
Thanks for letting us listen in !
