Generative Activity during Geometry Problem Solving: Comparison of the Performance of High-Achieving and Low-Achieving High School Students.
Lawson, Michael J.; Chinnappan, Mohan
Cognition and Instruction, v12 n1 p61-93 1994
The problem-solving performance of high-achieving (HA) and low-achieving (LA) 11th-grade students was compared during solution of geometry problems using a think-aloud procedure. Detailed analysis of problem-solving protocols indicated that HA students not only accessed a greater body of geometrical knowledge but also used that knowledge more effectively. (HTH)
