Growing Problem Solvers provides four original, related, classroom-ready mathematical tasks, one for each grade band. Together, these tasks illustrate the trajectory of learners’ growth as problem solvers across their years of school mathematics.
The author alters the definitions of ellipses and hyperbolas by using a line and a point not on the line as the foci, instead of two points. He develops the resulting prototypical diagrams from both synthetic and analytic perspectives, as well as making use of technology.
