What's Your M. Q.?
Joyal, Lloyd H.; And Others
This volume presents a collection of problems designed for use in weekly activities in elementary classes. The activities were designed to assist teachers in encouraging creativity and divergent thinking in mathematics. The problems included were originally published in diverse sources. Each problem is coded to indicate the content area and the location of the problem in the original source. Problems included in the volume represent 29 content areas; 7 of these areas are related to arithmetic, 5 to geometry, and the others to measurement, probability, logic, ordered pairs, and time and money. A separate section provides answers to all problems. A discussion of creativity in mathematics, results of psychological research related to creativity, and recommendations of mathematics educators for nurturing creativity serves as an introduction to the activities.
