ab: Summary: Mathematics competition questions are useful resources for
teachers to craft mathematical tasks for instructional purposes. These
tasks could serve two objectives: to develop (i) studentsâ€™ interest
in mathematics and (ii) higher order thinking skills in the subject.
The learning experiences provided by these tasks are rich and certainly
appropriate for nurturing reflective learners. This chapter illustrates
through examples how mathematics competition questions may be crafted
into useful tasks for use in classrooms to advance the above two
objectives.
