Research Pop-Up: Mathematical Creativity
Most creativity tests are looking at general, not domain-specific creativity. Additionally, when testing mathematical ability, assessments often treat the topic as a unidimensional rather than multidimensional construct (Kattou et al., 2013). Identifying students gifted in mathematical creativity can help for placement into gifted programs (Kattou et al., 2013; Mann, 2009). Most importantly, helping teachers recognize the importance of divergent, creative mathematical teaching and ways to teach this and help students learn these skills is vital if we are to prepare students for the needs of our future (Kattou et al., 2013; Mann, 2009; Pham & Cho, 2018). Learn more about research being conducted in gifted education in this short research presentation.
