Course Objectives

• To discuss a range of activities and how they promote the development of reasoning alongside problem solving.

“The ability to reason mathematically is the most important factor in a pupil’s success in mathematics. It is therefore crucial that opportunities to develop mathematical reasoning skills are integrated fully into the curriculum. Such skills support deep and sustainable learning and enable pupils to make connections in mathematics.” Nunes (2009)
