Soviet Studies in the Psychology of Learning and Teaching Mathematics, Volume 6, Instruction in Problem Solving.
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 nine articles concerned with instruction in problem solving. Some topics covered extensively are the formation of the concept of "type of problem," the influence of vocabulary, a suggested analytic-synthetic method for use at every grade level, and whether or not to use algebraic methods in the elementary grades. Related documents are ED 042 628, ED 042 632, ED 042 633, SE 016 666, and SE 016 667. (LS)
