This paper reports the nature of classroom practice that afforded students' meaning making at an upper secondary mathematics classroom in Norway. The participation of both teachers and students in the collaborative classroom practice they jointly establish is outlined. A longitudinal and person-in-practice view sheds light not only on the meaning producing foreground that was initiated, but also the nature of its growth. An artefact of instructional practice of two teachers Olaf and Knut is thus evidenced. In this there is opportunity to appreciate mathematical content, pedagogy and students' thinking in an integrated manner – making such knowledge useful and usable by practising as well as prospective teachers of mathematics.
