Mathematics as Problem Solving--A Japanese Way.
Sawada, Daiyo
It is known from many international studies that Japanese students do well in mathematics. This paper describes a typical lesson from a Japanese fifth-grade classroom, and discusses the lesson in terms of problem solving, including: embedding of the problem, spending 35 minutes or more on one problem, acting out the problem, multiple solutions, interesting problems to solve, use of manipulative aids, and interpretation rather than application.
