Basic Processes in Simple Problem Solving. Final Report.
Groen, Guy J.
This paper presents the results of three experiments studying routine problem-solving tasks in simple addition and subtraction. Indications are that children tend to solve such problems by internalized counting procedures which may be learned independently as a consequence of practice in problem solving. Brief descriptions of exploratory studies concerning word problems and sequential rules are also included. (LS)
