Is There a Causal Relation between Mathematical Creativity and Mathematical Problem-Solving Performance?
Tyagi, Tarun Kumar
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v47 n3 p388-394 2016
The relationship between mathematical creativity (MC) and mathematical problem-solving performance (MP) has often been studied but the causal relation between these two constructs has yet to be clearly reported. The main purpose of this study was to define the causal relationship between MC and MP. Data from a representative sample of 480 eighth-grade students were analysed using a cross-lagged panel correlation (CLPC) design. CLPC attempts to rule out plausible alternative explanation of a causal effect. The result suggests that significant predominant causal relationship was found between MC and MP. It indicates that MP was found to be a cause of MC than the converse.
