Ame sms conference 2013 problem solving and posing as context for development (for students)

  1. 1. Problem Solving and Posing as Context for Developing Mathematical Habits of Mind Adapted from Dr Hang Kim Hoo
  2. 2. Problem Solving and Posing as Context for Developing Mathematical Habits of Mind “Using Geometry to demonstrate how problem solving and problem posing can be integrated naturally to explicate mathematical reasoning and develop productive habits of mind in learning and doing mathematics…”
  3. 3. Hierarchy of Developmental Stages Problem Solving and Posing as Context for Developing Mathematical Habits of Mind LEVEL 4 • Formal Deduction • Proving and confirming results LEVEL 3 Third Concept LEVEL 1 LEVEL 2 • Informal Deduction • Looking for and establishing relationships, conjecturing • Recognition • Concrete experiences • Analysis • Describing and making sense of experiences
  4. 4. Problem Generating Strategies Strengthen/weaken Hypothesis(Conclusion) Generalise (Specialize) Consider the Converse Problem Solving and Posing as Context for Developing Mathematical Habits of Mind
