Early Secondary Mathematics: The Use of Intrigue to Enhance Mathematical Thinking and Motivation in Beginning Algebra

Marjorie Lewkowicz 

February 2003, Volume 96, Issue 2, Page 92

Abstract:
The use of a purposefully designed set of problems, borrowed from a variety of critical thinking activity books, and selected to motivate, excite and engage students in the learning process. Incorporating these problems in a beginning algebra course is intended to help students develop a deeper, more conceptual understanding of mathematics.
