Summary: In this qualitative study, 16 students (aged 7 to 10 years) have been videotaped and interviewed while solving mathematical problems. During these processes, the students were encouraged to use so called strategy keys that are used as prompts (similar to aid cards) when the student gets stuck in the solving process. On each key, one general heuristic strategy is stated. This way, students have to decide which strategy could possibly help to overcome a barrier. In this study we investigated the influence of strategy keys on the students’ strategy behaviour and identified five different behaviours.
