Defining Problem Solving
  Introduction | Posing Problems in a Variety of Contexts | Mathematical Stories | Assessing Student Thinking | Teacher's Role | Your Journal

 
 

You've now considered the Problem-Solving Standard in more detail. Read the following questions and answer one in light of the students and content you teach.


Questions to write and reflect about:
  • What are important things to consider as you select rich mathematics problems for your students to work on?
  • What changes do you need to make to have your mathematics lessons become structured around problem solving?
  • How would you explain the importance of problem solving to parents who say that they prefer the traditional computation focus for their child?
Three ways to write and reflect:
  • Use pen and paper.
  • Use a word processor.
  • Use the form below.
Be sure to save what you have written before you navigate out of the journal section.
