Problem Solving: A Handbook for Senior High School Teachers.
Krulik, Stephen; Rudnick, Jesse A.
The teaching of problem solving begins the moment a child first enters school and the senior high school plays a major role in the development of this skill since a number of students terminate their formal education at the end of this period. This book combines suggestions for the teaching of problem solving with activities, problems, and strategy games that students find interesting as they gain valuable experiences in problem solving. Over 120 classroom-tested problems are included. Discussions in this volume include a definition of problem solving, heuristics, and how to teach problem solving. Also provided are collections of strategy games and nonroutine problems, including 35 reproducible blackline masters for selected problems and game boards; and a bibliography of 51 resources on problem solving.
