Abstract [en]

Upper secondary students’ task solving reasoning was analysed, with a focus on grounds for different strategy choices and implementa- tions. The results indicate that mathematically well-founded considerations were rare. The dominating reasoning types were algorithmic reasoning, where students tried to remember a suitable algorithm, sometimes in a random way, and piloted reasoning, where progress was possible only when essentially all important strategy choices were made by the interviewer.
