Abstract: The purpose of this symposium is to consider the embodied nature of failure in different learning environments, contexts, mathematical situations, and age groups. Our exploratory work was guided by the following questions: (a) How is failure represented through our bodily actions? (b) How is failure co-constructed through our bodies? (c) How are our reactions to failure embodied? (d) How might embodied failure be framed or conceptualized across mathematical situations? We explore these questions through a close examination of the intersection of embodied cognition, failure, and mathematical activity as presented and challenged by a diverse spectrum of scholars. While grounded in mathematical activity, this symposium will contribute to the ongoing state of learning science research regarding how the mind, body, and environment work together to highlight student’s reasoning and thinking, particularly within moments of failure.
