Abstract: 
This paper reports on the types of problems that high-achieving students posed when given
investigative tasks that were constructed by opening up some mathematical problems. A
teaching experiment was conducted to develop the students’ thinking processes during
mathematical investigation, and each student was videotaped thinking aloud during a pretest
and a posttest. The findings show that some students were unable to pose the original
intended problems and what Krutetskii (1976) called problems that ‘naturally follow’ from
the task, including extending the task to generalise. The implications of the difficulty
encountered by these students for teaching and research will also be discussed.
