This paper examines the role that different learning environments play in the implementation of a single problem-solving activity in an elementary mathematics methods course. This course is taught both online and face-to-face. The activity, done in the first class period or first module of the course, was initially used in a face-to-face class and then adapted later for use in an online class. While the task was originally designed for the face-to-face course, it is not the case that it is fully useful there and less useful in the online version. Rather, each context privileges different ideas about teaching and learning mathematics. Possibilities to address the challenges of each environment are considered with emphasis on task structure and the role of the instructor.
