An emerging research framework for analyzing creative and imitative reasoning in problem solving

Abstract [en]

A central problem in mathematics education is that we want students to become problem solvers, but even after 20 years of research and reform many students still do rote thinking. This thinking is a main factor behind learning and achievement difficulties and has been analysed in a series of empirical studies. This presentation will summarise these studies, with a particular focus on the roles of creative and imitative reasoning.
