Abstract: 

Recounts a study documenting the actual learning trajectory of the classroom community and the diversity in eighth-graders' reasoning as they participated in the classroom mathematical practices that constituted this trajectory. Describes the learning of the research team by documenting conjectures about students' statistical learning and the means of supporting it. Proposes a revised learning trajectory to inform design and instruction in other classrooms.
