Silver, Edward A.; Cai, Jinfa
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v27 n5 p521-39 Nov 1996
Mathematical problems generated by 509 middle school students who were given story-problem descriptions and asked to pose questions that could be answered using the information were examined for solvability, linguistic and mathematical complexity, and relationships within the sets of posed problems. The multiple-step data analysis scheme can be implemented by teachers evaluating students' posing of arithmetic story problems. (Author/AIM)
