Summary: The author asks how can we avoid letting `practice' dominate the teaching of the new mathematics national curriculum. Is it possible to engineer practice in mathematics in such a way as to offer the learner more? The author provides an exemplar to show how posing `rich' questions can provide sufficient practice to enable learners to develop mathematical fluency.
