Future Primary and Preschool Pedagogy Specialization Students' Mathematical Problem Solving Competency
Marchis, Iuliana
Acta Didactica Napocensia, v6 n2 p33-38 2013
Developing the problem solving competency is one of the main goals of school education, as it is a very important competency in someone's everyday life and career as well. Mathematics is highly appropriate for developing this competence. This research studies future Primary and Preschool Pedagogy specialization students' mathematical problem solving and reasoning competency. These competencies are very important for a primary school teacher. The results show that most of the students easily can solve routine problems, but only half of them has adequate problem solving competency (i.e. they can successfully solve non-routine problems), and a quarter of them has good reasoning competency.
