Mathematical reasoning and beliefs in non-routine task solving
2014 (English)In: Current State of Research on Mathematical Beliefs XX: Proceedings of the MAVI-20 Conference September 29 – October 1, 2014, Falun, Sweden / [ed] L. Sumpter, 2014Conference paper (Other academic)
This paper explores low performing upper secondary school students’ mathematical reasoning when solving non-routine tasks in pairs. Their solutions were analysed using a theoretical framework about mathematical reasoning and a model to study beliefs as arguments for choices. The results confirm previous research and three themes of beliefs are used by the student. These themes are safety, expectations, and motivation. The results also show a connection between beliefs and imitative reasoning as a way to solve non-routine tasks.
