Abstract [en]

It has been shown to be problematic for teachers to use Krutetskii´s definition of mathematicalabilities to recognize mathematically highly able pupils (MHAPs). Aiming to concretize whatteachers can notice in pupils’ problem-solving processes, we connect a 10-year-old boy’s problemsolvingprocess to some of the abilities defined by Krutetskii. The results give clear descriptions ofwhat teachers can observe in pupils’ mathematical activities to notice their mathematical potential.We concretize, for example, how a pupil’s abilities to grasp a problem’s formal structure and togeneralize can be observed. To be able to notice MHAPs, teachers need research-based support onhow and what to observe in their pupils. Our proposed guide needs to be tested and validated toexplore if it will help teachers to notice MHAPs s and subsequently support their learning.
