This study concerns the design of mathematical tasks for first year large group mixed ability undergraduate classes. The tasks were designed by the two authors and assigned as homework in courses taught by them. The object was to foster deeper understanding through problems that facilitate engagement with concepts. We report on how the tasks were written and on preliminary student feedback.
