Mathematical Problem Solving Project Technical Report II: D. Learning to Solve Problems by Solving Problems: A Report of a Preliminary Investigation. Final Report.
Stengel, Arthur; And Others
The activities described in this report are focused on a preliminary investigation of the effects of presenting problems to children without any prior formal problem-solving instruction, on the children's ability to solve the problems, and on their subsequent problem-solving performances. The work was an outgrowth of activities related to the observation of children's problem-solving efforts and the resulting conjectures. A description is given of the preparation of materials and the ensuing pilot study. Implications are discussed and some conjectures related. (MP)
