Problem Solving: A Handbook for Elementary School Teachers.
Krulik, Stephen; Rudnick, Jesse A.
This book combines suggestions for the teaching of problem solving with activities and carefully discussed non-routine problems which students should find interesting as they gain valuable experience in problem solving. The over 300 activities and problems have been gleaned from a variety of sources and have been classroom tested by practicing teachers. Topics included are an explanation of problem solving and heuristics, the pedagogy of problem solving, strategy games, and non-routine problems. An extensive number of problems and strategy game boards are given. A 50-item bibliography of problem solving resources is included. (Author/MVL)
