Problem Solving Heuristics , Affect , and Discrete Mathematics

  title={Problem Solving Heuristics , Affect , and Discrete Mathematics},
  author={Gerald A. Goldin},
It has been suggested that activities in discrete mathematics allow a kind of new beginning for students and teachers. Students who have been “turned off” by traditional school mathematics, and teachers who have long ago routinized their instruction, can find in the domain of discrete mathematics opportunities for mathematical discovery and interesting, nonroutine problem solving. Sometimes formerly low-achieving students demonstrate mathematical abilities their teachers did not know they had… CONTINUE READING
