Abstract: We discuss a constructionism-based geometry curriculum in which middle school students built models of tents, first at a full, large-size scale, and then at a small scale. We build on body syntonicity to analyze how students learn through relating abstract knowledge to the knowledge of their bodies. Using video data, we analyze the affordances and constraints for students' mathematical engagement in creating models. We conclude with brief implications for mathematics education and for CSCL research.
