The primary goal of my thesis is to attempt to formulate problems in mathematics that are geared more towards developing student interest and multipurpose reasoning skills rather than repetitive actions. These problems were created using strategies described in various pieces of literature I have read on the subject. Some were created from scratch, others were based on problems found in mathematical texts. The goal is to see if these problems generate student interest in mathematics. These problems were typed into pdf files using Latex Code and sent to high school teachers to present to the students. After attempting to solve the problems, the students took a survey to rate their experience.
