Abstract: In this paper I use the conceptual change theoretical framework, in order to describe and evaluate the productivity of teacher's in-situ support to Situational misconceptions. I illustrate a case in which two students work together in order to solve a problem in math. The focal point is their teacher's intervention, in which she attempts to get her students out of a messy situation. This analysis helps to understand, in fine grain, the process – and consequences – of avoiding refutation of non-productive narratives, before adding new ones - in the context of math problem solving. In addition, we learn that in the process of solution, narratives might not always compete: ideas from two, or more, narratives could be forged to new Situational misconceptions.
