Posing or raising appropriate problems is necessary and important for active and deep
learning in mathematics. However, students rarely make effort to find thinking problems by
themselves. Such an attitude and behavior often lead to passive learning and cause various
difficulties and problems in mathematics teaching. The main objective of this paper is to
explore the ways to develop students’ ability to find and pose good mathematical problems and
thus to promote more active learning in mathematics.
This paper was published in the 1999 Proceedings of the MERA-ERA Joint Conference held at Malacca, Malaysia from 1-3 December 1999
