Title: Designing questions for diagnosing children's difficulties in mathematics

Abstract: Conducting remedial classes to help children solve mathematical problems is not uncommon in most schools. However, a systematic or scientific approach of carrying out the remedial activity is seldom seen in many schools. For example, teachers in many schools may use the same classroom methods of teaching in their remedial lessons. They usually do not carry out any diagnostic tests to determine the actual weaknesses of pupils before embarking on any appropriate methods in their teaching. This article describes two techniques of diagnosis which are based on children's error patterns and task-analysis concept. These techniques may provide some insights to teachers who engage in remedial activities.
