Processes and Heuristics Involved in Mathematical Divergent Problem Solving: A Further Analysis.
Brandau, Linda
This research involved the observation and audio-recording of 30 ninth-grade mathematics students recommended as being outstanding by their mathematics teachers. Each student was presented with five different problem situations for which he or she was to make mathematical conjectures. During the interview, the students thought aloud and all of their manipulative moves were recorded. The primary focus of this paper is an analysis of creativity factors exhibited by the five highest-scoring students on a particular geometric problem. The comparisons and analyses showed that these five students had much in common even though each student was highly individualistic. (MP)
