Analyzing the Tacit Strategies of Novice Designers.
Welch, Malcolm
Research in Science and Technological Education, v17 n1 p19-34 May 1999
Describes an investigation of students' problem-solving strategies as seventh-grade students (n=10) attempted to design a solution to a technological problem. Concludes that novice designers use highly iterative rather than linear strategies, develop their ideas using three-dimensional materials rather than two-dimensional sketches, and develop solutions serially rather than generating several possible solutions prior to modeling. Contains 59 references. (Author/WRM)
