The Art of Problem Posing, Second Edition. by Brown, Stephen I.(DLC)1661993; Walter, Marion I.;
The Art of Problem Posing -- Copyright -- Contents -- Acknowledgments: Second Edition -- 1 Introduction -- Audience -- Ways of Reading the Book -- Origins of the Book -- 2 Two Problem Posing Perspectives: Accepting and Challenging -- A First Look -- What Are Some Answers? -- A Second Look at x2 + y2 = z2 -- A New Perspective -- 3 The First Phase of Problem Posing: Accepting -- Sticking to the Given: Some Examples -- Some Reflections on Phenomena to Investigate -- Strategies for Phase-One Problem Generation -- 4 The Second Phase of Problem Posing: "What-If-Not" -- Seeing What is in Front of You -- Attribute Listing for a New Problem Posing Strategy -- Now What? A Look at Three Attributes of Geoboards -- What Have We Done? -- A Return to the Pythagorean Theorem -- Summary -- 5 The "What-If-Not" Strategy in Action -- Two Sample "What-If-Nots" in Some Detail -- Other Beginnings: Some Snippets -- Summary -- 6 Some Natural Links Between Problem Posing and Problem Solving -- One Example in Detail -- Problem Solving Yields Problem Posing -- Reflections on Natural Links -- Summary -- 7 In the Classroom: Student as Author and Critic -- Course Description -- Organization of the Course -- A Word of Caution -- "Snippets" of Journal Materials -- Summary -- 8 Conclusion -- A Look Back -- Problem Posing and Math Anxiety -- Problem Posing and Co-Operation -- Bibliography -- Author Index -- Subject Index.Updated and expanded, this second edition satisfies the same philosophical objective as the first -- to show the importance of problem posing. Although interest in mathematical problem solving increased during the past decade, problem posing remained relatively ignored. The Art of Problem Posing draws attention to this equally important act and is the innovator in the field. Special features include: * an exploration ofthe logical relationship between problem posing and problem solving * a special chapter devoted to teaching problem posing as a separate course * sketches, drawings, diagrams, and cartoons that illustrate the schemes proposed * a special section on writing in mathematics.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.

Toward a Unified Theory of Problem Solving : Views From the Content Domains. by Smith, Mike U.(DLC)1835614;
Toward a Unified Theory of Problem Solving Views From the Content Domains -- Copyright -- Contents -- 1 A View from Biology -- 2 A View from Chemistry -- 3 A View from Medicine -- 4 A View from Programming -- 5 A View of Mathematical Problem Solving In School -- 6 A View from Physics -- 7 A View from Troubleshooting -- Author Index -- Subject Index.One of the most active fields of educational research in recent years has been the investigation of problem-solving performance. Two opposing views of current research -- one suggesting that there are more differences than similarities within different domains, and the other stating that there is great similarity -- lead to a variety of questions: * Is problem solving a single construct? * Are there aspects of problem-solving performance that are similar across a variety of content domains? * What problem-solving skills learned within one context can be expected to transfer to other domains? The purpose of this book is to serve as the basis for the productive exchange of information that will help to answer these questions -- by drawing together preliminary theoretical understandings, sparking debate and disagreement, raising new questions and directions, and perhaps developing new world views.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.
