This web site is a portal to a collection of challenges devoted to

The Art & Craft
of
Posing Problems & Making Conjectures

Expanding Teachers' and Students' Mathematical 'Habits of Mind'


This evolving collection of challenges and essays has two primary goals -

- to help teachers think deeply about aspects of mathematics that they know and are expected to teach, and

- to (re)awaken teachers' own intellectual curiosity and mathematical creativity


the essence of...

...teaching is posing a provocative & engaging next question at the proper moment

...mathematics is making, exploring, proving & disproving conjectures

Judah L. Schwartz


"In mathematics, the art of proposing a question must be held of higher value than solving it"
