Teacher Activities

T. engages Ss in discussion about the set induction.


(Engaging and questioning).T. ask Ss question that
will bring them to identifying that there was a
problem. T. ask Ss what is a problem.
T. allows Ss to come up with the definition of a
problem.
T. writes keywords on whiteboard of students
definition, then allow student to put together a
definition of a problem. T. will guide Ss into the
definition.
