Summary This paper reports on an in-depth study that explores preservice teachers’ pedagogical adaptations to a rich mathematical task. Data were collected from six elementary preservice teachers working in pairs to first solve a mathematics problem and then design adaptations to make the problem more accessible and more challenging for diverse learners. Results indicate that preservice teachers are able to draw upon a range of strategies to vary the mathematical content, the context, and the question asked. However, they also did not notice or attend to how their adaptations changed the mathematical structure of the problem. This study provides insights into what is involved in learning to adapt classroom mathematical tasks as an important pedagogical practice.
