ab: Summary: The interconnecting problem approach suggests that often one and
the same mathematical problem can be used to teach various mathematical
topics at different grade levels. How is this approach useful for the
development of mathematical ability and the enrichment of mathematical
experiences of all students including the gifted ones? What are the
benefits for teachersâ€™ and what would teachers need to implement this
approach? What directions would further research on these issues take?
The paper discusses these and closely related questions.
