Abstract

Reversed Equation Solving (RES) is a task which aims to foster understanding and reasoning above rote-based learning. RES is analyzed with a framework formed by combining two earlier frameworks for analyzing the quality of mathematical tasks. The analysis suggests that conceptual emphasis and high degree of freedom in creating equations for one’s peers to solve makes Reversed Equation Solving a cognitively demanding, rewarding and mathematically rich task.
