# What do we want to achieve in
students for Mathematics
Learning?

## Framework for 21st Century
Competencies and students
outcomes

### Competencies

## Mathematics
Syllabus

### Aims of Math
education:

### Processes

### Metacognition

## What is our Area of
Concern?

### Students lack the ability to analyse
mathematical situations and construct logical
argeuments to reason their thinking

## Volume (measurement)
Spatial Relationships

### Measure syllabus

### Describes the attributes of
objects e.g. liquid

### Standard units of measure enable
people to interpret results or data.

### Essential
questions

### Misconceptions

## Inquiry question: How does teacher-directed
inquiry approach build studentsâ€™ mathematical
reasoning and communication skills?

### Readings

### This approach is about learning through guided inquiry. Instead of giving the answers, teachers
lead students to explore, investigate and find answers on their own. Students learn to focus on
specific questions and ideas and are engaged in communicating, explaining and reflecting on
their answers. They also learn to pose questions, process information and data and seek
appropriate methods and solutions. This enhances the development of mathematical processes
and 21st century competencies. (Math Syllabus 2013)

thinking about thinking - refers to the awareness of, and the ability to control one's thinking processes, in particular the selection and use of problem-solving strategies. It includes monitoring of one's own thinking, and self- regulation of learning.
