Summary: When dealing with problem solving’ in mathematics education, educators very often concentrate on teaching heuristic methods, assuming that pupils approach all (mathematical) problems in a logical and rational manner at all times, taking all available information and all heuristic rules offered into consideration. Such persons which I call prologs do not exist in reality. Adopting ideas of Sunstein \& Thaler’s book {\it Nudge} I develop the concept of learning spaces with solver friendly choice architecture.
