The Role of Understanding in Solving Word Problems.
Cummins, Denise Dellarosa; And Others
Cognitive Psychology, v20 n4 p405-38 Oct 1988
Two experiments assessed whether children's difficulty with word problems can be attributed to difficulty in comprehending abstract or ambiguous language. The subjects were 38 first-, 36 second-, and 36 third-graders. The resulting theory of arithmetic word problem solving may represent a theoretical problem-solving model. (TJH)
