Problem posing: Students between driven creativity and mathematical failure

Abstract : We explore behaviors of high achievers 10 to 16 years old during a problem modification process by looking at the ways students vary the constraints of a given problem. We found that these children swing between low amplitude driven creativity and failure to pose mathematically consistent problems when it comes about understanding the deep structure of mathematical concepts and strategies.
