Different Levels of Ability in Solving Mathematical Word Problems.
Venezky, Richard L.; Bregar, William S.
Journal of Mathematical Behavior, v7 n2 p111-34 Aug 1988
Middle school and college students were assessed on percentage. Better students in each group were given word problems involving percentage and asked to think aloud as they solved problems. College students made more use of strategies for control and monitoring of their own procedures. A three-stage model for problem solving is then hypothesized. (MNS)
