Mathematical Investigations in the Reviewed Basic School Curriculum
AbstractMathematics teachers are called upon to use innovative teaching methods capable of developing mathematical understanding, inquiry, problem solving skills, and interest in children. This paper examines the role of investigations in the child's mathematical development. It looks at the nature of mathematical investigations in the basic school curriculum, how mathematical investigations can be organized, and attempts to make suggestions by which teaching mathematics through investigations can be popularized at the basic school level.
