Verschaffel, Lieven; De Corte, Erik; Vierstraete, Heidi
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v30 n3 p265-85 May 1999
Examines the scope and nature of upper elementary school pupils' difficulties with modeling and solving nonroutine additive word problems. Concludes that many errors result from the superficial, stereotyped approach of adding or subtracting two given numbers without considering the appropriateness of that action in relation to the problem context. Contains 31 references. (Author/ASK)
