Soviet Studies in the Psychology of Learning and Teaching Mathematics, Volume 4, Problem Solving in Geometry.
Kilpatrick, Jeremy, Ed.; Wirszup, Izaak, Ed.
The series is a collection of translations from the Soviet literature of the past 25 years on research in the psychology of mathematical instruction and the related methods of teaching mathematics. The aim of the series is to acquaint educators and teachers with directions, ideas, and accomplishments in the psychology of mathematical instruction in the Soviet Union. This volume contains 10 articles on problem solving in geometry. Some topics covered extensively are the reformulations of problems, the use of diagrams, and the actual thought processes involved in geometric proofs. Several articles contain specific suggestions for teachers and textbook authors on how geometric proofs should be handled. Related documents are ED 042 628, ED 042 632, ED 042 633, SE 016 667, and SE 016 668. (LS)
