Abstract

In this article, student Satvik Kaushik investigates Armstrong numbers. Mathematical investigation is a powerful way for students to learn more about concepts that interest them. In mathematical investigations, students are expected to pose their own problems after initial exploration of the mathematical situation. The exploration of the situation, the formulation of problems and their solution give opportunity for the development of independent mathematical thinking and in engaging in mathematical processes such as organizing and recording data, pattern searching, conjecturing, inferring, justifying and explaining conjectures and generalizations. It is these thinking processes which enable an individual to learn more mathematics, apply mathematics in other disciplines and in everyday situations and to solve mathematical (and nonmathematical) problems.
