First commenced with students in grade six, this project follows dyads on two more occasions, by which time students are in their grade seven and high school in the Swedish school system. The problems from the Kängaru are utilised to offer students with differing abilities and aptitudes at school mathematics neither any advantage nor disadvantage in their ability to solve problems. This offers opportunity to investigate the range of abilities and strategies that students exhibit in arriving at solutions. The aim of the project is to look beyond finding out if students can or cannot solve the creative problems offered by the Kängaru and to understand the nature of cues or prompts they utilise and find useful in solving problems. Such insight could in turn throw light on the kind of training that students may be wanting of towards solving mathematical problems.
