Introducing Challenging Tasks: Inviting and Clarifying without Explaining and Demonstrating
Cheeseman, Jill; Clarke, Doug; Roche, Anne; Walker, Nadia
Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, v21 n3 p3-6 2016
Introducing challenging tasks in such a way that makes them accessible, rather than daunting, to students is a challenge for teachers. Solving challenging tasks involves students having to grapple with the problem. The role of the teacher is to motivate and clarify the problem rather than showing students how to solve the problem.
