Abstract

The aims of the study were to investigate critical mathematical thinking in young students, and teaching actions/questions that help these young students exhibit their critical mathematical thinking. A key finding was the conceptualisation of a Critical Mathematical Thinking Framework for Young Students. This framework (a) articulates the key characteristics young students exhibit as they engage in critical mathematical thinking, and (b) can be used by teachers to help them identify critical mathematical thinking within the classroom context. Additionally, specific teacher questions that support young students to exhibit critical mathematical thinking were delineated. The study determined that teachers play a pivotal role in supporting young students to exhibit their critical mathematical thinking.
