The Effect of Year-Long Instruction in Mathematical Problem Solving on Middle-School Students' Attitudes, Beliefs, and Abilities.
Higgins, Karen M.
Journal of Experimental Education, v66 n1 p5-28 Fall 1997
Three classes of middle-school students who received one year of problem-solving instruction (n=74) were compared with three classes who were taught in a more traditional manner (n=63). Students receiving problem-solving instruction showed more perseverance in solving problems, more positive attitudes, and more sophisticated definitions of mathematical understanding. (SLD)
