ab: Summary: The authors explore ideas by engaging in mathematical activity.
This is the latest report from the Institute for Mathematical Pedagogy.
By engaging with problems members of the group seek to unravel the
processes that lead to resolution. The theme set, the accounts by
members describe the experience of being immersed in mathematical
thinking, of being challenged to think “outside their personal
mathematical box", of having to justify conclusions, and of having the
opportunity to ‘live’ mathematics for a while.
