ab: Throughout their schooling, students build mathematical toolkits ‒ a
collection of all the mathematics they have internalized. Since it may
be difficult for students to explore new mathematical territory without
guidance and sufficient experience in mathematical reasoning, helping
them learn to use their toolkits properly is an important way to
promote mathematical reasoning. This paper describes what North Shore
High School’s Mathematics Research Program has done to provide
students with opportunities to tap into their mathematical toolkits and
engage in solid, yet accessible, mathematics. (Orig.)
