Mathematical Creativity in Schoolchildren.
Haylock, Derek W.
Journal of Creative Behavior, v21 n1 p48-59 1987
A mixed-ability sample of 280 11- and 12-year-olds was used to investigate mathematical creativity and identify characteristics typical of pupils with mathematical creativity. Hypotheses concerned with overcoming fixations and divergent production were clearly supported only for the highest attaining group. Mathematically creative students indicated high self-concept and low anxiety regarding math. (KM)
