%X Open peer commentary on the article “From Problem Solving to Problem Posing, and from Strategies to Laying Down a Path in Solving: Taking Varela’s Ideas to Mathematics Education Research” by Jérôme Proulx & Jean-François Maheux. Upshot: The target article prioritises the emergence of pupils’ mathematical ideas. Other constructivist approaches have focussed on how teachers might act to facilitate pupils’ mathematical activity. How might teachers be helped to use Varela’s insights into the uncontrollable emergence of ideas while teaching in the context of dominant intentional problem-solving approaches?
