Teachers' Point of View in Teaching Mathematical Problem-Solving
TLDR
This article analyzes a trial to reach practicing mathematics teachers and summarizes their opinion about some basic issues of teaching mathematics problem-solving from the point of view of cognitive load theory, what is a quite new topic in mathematics didactics society.
Cultivating creative problem solvers: the PBL style
AbstractAfter decades of research, we now know that creativity is a multidimensional construct that involves variables from the domains of personality, environment, and cognition. A construct with
