Sengupta-Irving, Tesha; Agarwal, Priyanka – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2017
Students are expected to learn mathematics such that when they encounter challenging problems they will persist. Creating opportunities for students to persist in problem solving is therefore argued as essential to effective teaching and to children developing positive dispositions in mathematical learning. This analysis takes a novel approach to…
