The aim of learning is to be able to apply knowledge to solve new problems - that not only requires deeper conceptual understanding, but also requires attitude to extrapolate knowledge to discover the path to solution. Each and every thought to solve a problem is a path leading to some knowledge but not necessarily to the solution. The exploration of paths that lead to some knowledge but not the solution are what we call as productive failures. GanitCharcha encourages to make productive failures as it is one of the proven way to engage anyone with Mathematics. A properly designed and instrumented process to commit productive failures can infuse a sense of accomplishments amongst learners and thereby enhancing their confidence and love towards Mathematics.
