Handouts 223-Kang-Problem Posing.pdf


Problem posing turns students and teachers into producers—not just consumers—of mathematics. Asking “what if . . .   not?” and changing just one element of a familiar task can open up new territory, inspire excitement, and lead to deeper analysis. Explore new problems based on familiar topics and see ways other teachers have handled them.
