Jackling, Noel; And Others
Higher Education Research and Development, v9 n2 p133-49 1990
It is proposed that algorithms and heuristics are useful in improving professional problem-solving abilities when contextualized within the academic discipline. A basic algorithm applied to problem solving in undergraduate engineering education and a similar algorithm applicable to legal problems are used as examples. Problem complexity and related variables are discussed. (Author/MSE)
