Abstract: Spontaneous gestures often express thoughts that differ from speech. Priming students to perform directed actions, movements designed to foster conceptual understanding, may give a way for students to organize their thoughts by providing a gestural vocabulary. Gestural insights are nonverbal expressions of movement that reveal students’ mathematical reasoning even when they were unable to verbalize their insights. This case study demonstrates how body-based resources like directed actions can foster gestural insights that support conceptual thinking.
