Abstract

Humans are commanded by God to think in order to get the truth and avoid being misled. Asking is part of thinking, so that to solve math problems students are required to ask quality questions. This case study research aims to explore students' questions when solving open-ended mathematical problems. This case study involved three junior high school students who could provide more than one solution. Mathematical tests and unstructured interviews were used to collect data. The results showed that there were three types of questions that were in students' minds while solving open-ended mathematical problems, including investigative questions, data collection tool questions, and validation questions.
