Vasile, Daniela
Mathematics Teaching, n230 p13-14 Sep 2012
We are frequently told that Hong Kong has a model system for learning mathematics. In this article Daniela Vasile notes one short-coming in that the pupils are not taught to problem-solve. She begins with a new class by asking them to write down the craziest equation they can come up with and bases her whole lesson, and the following homework, around what they come up with. The pupils are certainly inventive!
