Intellectual Abilities That Discriminate Good and Poor Problem Solvers.
Meyer, Ruth Ann
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v12 n2 p156-59 Mar 1981
This study compared good and poor fourth-grade problem solvers on a battery of 19 "reference" tests for verbal, induction, numerical, word fluency, memory, perceptual speed, and simple visualization abilities. Results suggest verbal, numerical, and especially induction abilities are important to successful mathematical problem solving. (MP)
