A collection of activities to provoke mathematical thinking

Chris Bills, Liz Bills, Anne Watson, John Mason

This booklet provides a wonderful collection of classroom approaches which encourage learners to create examples and to make generalisations — processes which are at the heart of ‘doing mathematics’. Each of the different techniques is illustrated by specific examples which range across all age groups and mathematical topics. These activities are designed to promote a classroom culture in which learner-generated examples open a window on mathematics that textbook exercises leave closed. For new and experienced teachers who are looking for well thought out and widely applicable ways to integrate open-ended questioning at the core of their teaching.
