This paper attempts to address the question of the extent emphasis on mathematical problem solving as spelt out in the syllabus gets enacted in the classrooms of three primary 5 teachers. It reports on the initial development of a video coding scheme and offers a glimpse into the teachers’ pedagogies and practices. Through the coding scheme, results suggest that the focus on problem solving, the range of heuristics observed and types of problems used were somewhat limited.
