Provides students in Education programs with an insight into the nature of problem-solving in mathematics. In particular, within the scope of the mathematics they have studied, the students will become aware of the process of using mathematics in open-ended problems, the way in which new mathematics can be developed, and mathematics as a human endeavour.
Encourages students to think mathematically and increase students' confidence in their mathematical ability.
On successful completion of this course, students will have:
1. been introduced to the process of problem-solving
2. explored a variety of approaches to problem solving
3. increased confidence in their ability to think mathematically and to solve mathematical problems.
. Working mathematically - approaches to problem-solving
. Thinking mathematically - problem-posing, generalising, conjecturing, linking.
