And rather than having teachers instruct them, these students prefer to work out solutions for themselves.Challenging Mathematical Tasks:includes activities that allow for sustained thinking, decision-making and risk-taking by the studentsfeatures a 'Learning Focus', 'Key Mathematical Language', 'Pedagogical Considerations', 'Enabling and Extending Prompts' for each task, plus 'Supplementary Tasks' and 'Possible Solutions'is written by a well-established expert in the field of teaching and learning mathematicsfollows a set structure to help students approach and work through the tasks.For a preview, see the Sample Pages tab.
