Journal of Education and Learning, v7 n4 p191-200 2018
Education policies today aim to raise individuals with 21st Century skills considered as a universal necessity and problem-solving skill is the one of the skills that have emerged as a requirement of the 21st century. Teaching problem solving is one of the most important topics of physics education, it is also the field where students have the most problems. While trying to solve physics problems, students often express that they understand the questions, they know the laws of physics on which the problem is based they have solved many similar problems, but the new problem is different from the previous problems therefore they cannot solve the problem. The aim of this study is to present an overview problem solving studies in physics education according to student level, methodology, and development of the problem-solving strategies usage chronologically.
