The Identification and Encouragement of Mathematical Creativity in First Grade Students, (Part 3).
Meyer, Rochelle Wilson
Reported is research involving the development and testing of a program designed to encourage individual creative mathematical activity in first grade students. Initially, some characteristics of the creative process and creative thinking were examined and six criteria describing certain aspects of mathematical creativity were identified and validated. An instrument used to measure observable mathematical creativity was designed in order to test the program on mathematical creativity. Two hypotheses were formulated: H1: "Participation in the program will increase a student's observable mathematical creativity"; H2: "Participation in the program will not affect a student's performance on a test of general creative ability". Part III contains the appendices of this report. (FL)
