Encouraging students to think mathematically using open-ended questioning, investigation, reflection, and feedback is a key feature of effective numeracy classrooms. This paper describes how open-ended tasks are being used to build students’ mathematical knowledge and skills alongside their abilities to inquire and think reflectively. In Tasmania, curriculum reform that values the development of higher-order capacities and the connection of knowledge and skills across the curriculum has enabled two teachers to work in a way that matches their own pedagogical beliefs and practices with respect to planning, teaching, and assessment for student learning.
