This paper addresses the didactic issue of promoting the construction of the problem-solving competency for undergraduate students. We report the design of a learning activity, engaging students in collaborative problem solving in topology, each of them playing as a cognitive function coming into play when a mathematician faces a problem. To shed light on the impact of the roles played by the students with respect to the solving-problem process, we analyze some student's protocols from which we carry out for each role some actions as well as some benefits recognized by the students.

Abstract

This paper addresses the didactic issue of promoting the construction of the problem-solving competency for undergraduate students. We report the design of a learning activity, engaging students in collaborative problem solving in topology, each of them playing as a cognitive function coming into play when a mathematician faces a problem. To shed light on the impact of the roles played by the students with respect to the solving-problem process, we analyze some student's protocols from which we carry out for each role some actions as well as some benefits recognized by the students.
