Evaluating Problem Solving in Mathematics.
Szetela, Walter, Nicol, Cynthia
Educational Leadership, v49 n8 p42-45 May 1992

Teachers need to analyze their processes and get students to communicate their thinking. This article suggests ways to understand students' thinking, their conceptions, their weaknesses, and their strengths. (six references) (MLH)
