Problem Solving in the Mathematics Classroom. Math Monograph No. 7.
Rachlin, Sid, Ed.; McDonald, Judy, Ed.
This monograph provides teachers with a wide range of articles on the teaching of problem solving in the mathematics classroom. The first section, on Understanding the Problem, includes articles which provide a sense of the "problem" of teaching problem solving. The second section, on Devising a Plan, provides suggested plans for attacking related classes of problems. The articles in the third section, on Carrying Out the Plan, focus on the solutions to specific problems. Finally, the fourth section, on Looking Back, includes articles which reflect on the past, present, and future of teaching for problem solving. (MNS)
