Asking Mathematical Questions Mathematically.
Mason, John
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v31 n1 p97-111 Jan-Feb 2000
Proposes that the style and format of questions used by lecturers and tutors profoundly influence students' conceptions of what mathematics is about and how it is conducted. Use of questions depends on both scaffolding and fading their use in front of students so that students internalize questions for their own learning and practice of mathematics.
