Characteristics of Problem Posing of Grade 9 Students on Geometric Tasks
Chua, Puay Huat; Wong, Khoon Yoong
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA) (35th, Singapore, Jul 2-6, 2012)
This is an exploratory study into the individual problem-posing characteristics of 480 Grade 9 Singapore students who were novice problem posers working on two geometric tasks. The students were asked to pose a problem for their friends to solve. Analyses of solvable posed problems were based on the problem type, problem information, solution type and domain knowledge. With the open-ended task, the students tend to over-condition their problems and to produce more problems with implicit assumption. How the findings can contribute to research in problem posing in schools is discussed.
