Abstract: Research shows that students’ learning is affected by the types of tasks. We explore how the use of nonstandard problems influences understanding of the Existence and Uniqueness Theorems (EUTs) by a group of engineering students. The focus is on the development of students’ mathematical discourse during the individual and group work with nonstandard problems. We present the evidence indicating that students developed new mathematical routines gaining a deeper understanding of EUTs and appreciated the experience.
