Soviet Studies in the Psychology of Learning and Teaching Mathematics, Volume IX: Problem-Solving Processes of Mentally Retarded Children.
Clarkson, Sandra P., Ed.; And Others
This is one of a series that is a collection of translations from the extensive Soviet literature of the past 25 years on research in the psychology of mathematics instruction. It also includes works on methods of teaching mathematics directly influenced by the psychological research. Selected papers and books considered to be of value to the American mathematics educator have been translated from the Russian and appear in this series for the first time in English. The aim of this series is to acquaint mathematics educators and teachers with directions, ideas, and accomplishments in the psychology of mathematical instruction in the Soviet Union. The articles in this volume are concerned with the instruction in problem solving of mentally retarded pupils in the auxiliary schools of the Soviet Union. Both articles in this volume describe research in problem solving and also provide concrete suggestions for improving instruction. The literature reviews contained in these articles provide us with much information on the state of research in the Soviet Union on problem solving in mathematics. (Author/MK)
