ab: Summary: The study described herein is part of a larger, inclusive research
study exploring the effects of model-eliciting activities (MEAs) of
“real-life" situations on the development of students’ mathematical
creativity. This part aim at revealing students’ cognitive abilities
that are involved in the creative modeling processes using a
qualitative analytical method. The participants were mathematically
talented students, members of the “Kidumatica" math club. The data
include videotapes, classroom observation and modeling products. Three
core categories ‒ appropriateness, ‘mathematical resourcefulness’
and inventiveness ‒ of students’ cognitive creative abilities are
identified, defined and illustrated. These findings may give a better
understanding of the larger concept of mathematical creativity.
