ABSTRACT
There are paths neither leading to decisive solutions nor replacing any of students activities. Paths which stimulate to thinking and analysing a problem from the moment it was stated and gently and almost imperceptibly leading the student towards a solution. Leading is not performed by asking obvious questions which already imply answers convenient to the teacher. Instead the student is let to think on his own seeking step after step for a solution. Student has to formulate own hypothesis, look for arguments in its favour or arguments challenging its correctness. He has to test ideas, to err, to overthrow earlier conclusions, to persuade himself. The effort leads to developing new knowledge and gaining new experiences and that all on a very solid basis. Contributions from the teacher are important: he should lead the students in a almost unnoticeable manner, providing encouragement and supporting students own activities. This kind of teacher approach builds students their self-confidence and encourages to further explorations. Teacher accepts students to share responsibility for the class lesson. At the end questions turn out to be even more significant than solving a specific problem.
