Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Problem solving has been an area of educational concern for many years. Research completed as far back as 1926 and 1932 centered on comparing methods of solving problems or identifying types of errors students made when solving verbal problems. Research has focused on characteristics of the problems, characteristics of those who are successful or unsuccessful at solving problems, and teaching strategies that may improve students' abilities in problem solving.
