Exploratory learning environments give a lot of freedom to learners to explore tasks on their own. However, although this can have a positive e ect on learning, the lack of structure makes it difficult to provide intelligent support in such systems. Furthermore, the open nature of these systems makes it harder to compare the support provided by different systems. This papers describes a series of scenarios that demonstrate these challenges in the context of an exploratory learning environment for mathematical generalisation and proposes a formulation that employs cases as a form of knowledge representation for modelling this domain.
