The nature of creative and insightful thinking of Year 8 students in mathematics classes was studied through simultaneous examination of post-lesson video stimulated interviews and lesson video. One case is used to illustrate these findings. The concept of Space to Think emerged as a space manoeuvred by each of the five (out of eighty-six) students from Australia and the USA who creatively developed new knowledge. This Space to Think illuminates pedagogical moves that provide opportunities for creative thinking.
