Investigations as a Central Focus for a Mathematics Curriculum.
This paper examines to show how an investigative approach to mathematics teaching can honor its two important dimensions--a thinking and reasoning side to go with the skill development. The paper addresses the question of why a problem solving approach has failed, makes the case for investigations as an overarching organizer, and discusses the make-up of an idealized classroom. (MM)
