Geometry Challenges
Robinson, James
Mathematics Teaching, n229 p22-23 Jul 2012
What is it that makes learners "think"? What geometrical problem, simply posed, can switch on the thinking processes of students? The author describes one such starting point that worked in a real classroom with Year 9 students. A group of learners for whom "mathematics comes easy" experience being stuck, they learn to handle this unfamiliar situation, and even make links within their own mathematics. (Contains 1 note.)
