Problem Complexity: A Measure of Problem Difficulty in Algebra by Using Computer.
Lee, Fong-Lok; Heyworth, Rex
Education Journal, v28 n1 p85-107 Sum 2000
Describes how a measure of problem difficulty (problem complexity) can be developed. Explores factors that may affect the difficulty of mathematics problems by focusing on ninth-grade student test responses (n=125), mathematics teacher questionnaire responses (n=29) in Hong Kong (China), and using a computer. Identifies four problem difficulty factors for mathematics. (CMK)
