GRADED CHAINS OF WORD PROBLEMS OR DON’T BE AFRAID OF PARAMETERS

Petr Emanovský, Dalibor Gonda

Abstract


In the article, we suggest the necessary change of priorities within mathematics education, i.e. to replace the accent on training of particular computational algorithms with the accent on solver capabilities. This new requirement in mathematics education can also be fulfilled through the parametric tasks. Thanks to the parameters, one can discover various dependencies between values affecting the final result of the task. The parametrization of the problem leads to the creation of solving of the entire system of tasks. The ability to parametrize a task and subsequently to solve the created parametric problem represents considerable benefit and extension of pupils’ solver skills.
