Summary/Abstract: Many researches show that pupils prefer learning how to solve the math problems by heart even in learning mathematics. It is necessary to look for ways of teaching mathematics leading to a departure from such a trend. One of the options is the frequent assignment of substitution-related tasks. This method develops pupils’ creativity. Many tasks offer several possible substitutions. Pupils learn to create a substitute expression. The substitution method allows the task to be transformed, thus creat connections between the different areas of mathematics and offer pupils new insights into the use of already acquired knowledge.
