The paper presents results of the research focused on studying students’ abilities to make generalisations in geometry. Students’ activities in a classroom have been analysed through the evaluation of their inquiry work on different tasks that required deductive reasoning and non-routine approach to carry out possible generalisations. Cognitive processes regarding to different geometrical structures are described and analysed in detail. The special emphasis has been given to students’ obstacles while making generalisations.
