Richard Skemp, author of The Psychology of Learning Mathematics, says that gradually equipping students with the analytical skills to address mathematical situations without their aid is one of three tasks for mathematics teachers. This ability involves a different skill set than understanding the mathematics for solutions. The self-talk required to explore a non-routine situation to determine how to get started mimics questions the teacher uses to guide students through assisted learning. Discovery is the creative process of modifying existing schemas to accommodate the new situation. Whereas problem-solving is considered by students as narrowing to an answer, investigation and discovery are expansive to new learning.</p>}, number={1}, journal={Ohio Journal of School Mathematics}, author={Meiring, Steven P.}, year={2022}, month={Oct.}, pages={50–56} }
