Problem Solving: Creating a Trend Toward a Shared Image.
Robinson, Floyd G.
This paper outlines the increasing prospects for improving the problem solving component of future mathematics programs. Of particular interest is the development of a viable growth schema for general problem solving strategies and skills. The plan presented here provides for five levels of problem solving sophistication. The main body of the paper is devoted to the description of these levels. Evidence drawn from two projects is used to assess the feasibility of movement from level to level, and to comment on requirements for, and obstacles to, that movement. (BB)
