Mathematical problem solving : issues in research by Frank K Lester( Book )

7 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This set of papers was originally developed for a conference on Issues and Directions in Mathematics Problem Solving Research held at Indiana University in May 1981. The purpose is to contribute to the clear formulation of the key issues in mathematical problem-solving research by presenting the ideas of actively involved researchers. An introduction provides an overview of each paper. The papers focus on the psychology of mathematical problem solving (R.E. Mayer), knowledge organization (E.A. Silver), implications from information-processing psychology, (D.J. Briars) building bridges between psychological and mathematics education research (F.K. Lester, Jr.), measuring problem solving outcomes (G.A. Goldin), a model for elementary teacher training in problem solving (J.F. LeBlanc), applied problem solving (R. Lesh, and M. Akerstrom), a concept-learning perspective (R.J. Shumway), and a statement of issues (H.L. Schoen). (Mns)

The Influence of Affects, Beliefs, and Metacognition on Problem Solving Behavior Some Tentative Speculations by Frank K Lester( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some ideas are presented about the ways in which the three domains of metacognition, affective factors, and beliefs influence the cognitive activities of seventh graders as they solve mathematics problems. The research project, initiated in 1981, is first described. Theoretical considerations are then discussed, with sections on affects, beliefs, control, sociocultural conditions, and the relationship among these domains and the domain of knowledge. Observations of seventh graders are presented, with a preliminary conceptualization of the role of perseverance. Problem-solving scenarios are provided, with contrasts between the responses of an average and an above-average student for the first scenario and reactions of other students for the other three scenarios. In the concluding discussion, the researchers note that their observations to date are speculative and likely to be altered as they continue their investigations. (MNS)
The Role of Metacognition in Mathematical Problem Solving A Study of Two Grade Seven Classes. Final Report by Frank K Lester( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This project was designed to: (1) assess 7th-graders' metacognitive beliefs and processes and investigate how they affect problem-solving behaviors; and (2) explore the extent to which these students can be taught to be more strategic and aware of their own problem-solving behaviors. The primary assessment was conducted by analyzing video tapes of individual students and pairs of students working on multi-step problems and non-standard problems, and subsequently being interviewed about their performance. The interview probed the students' mathematical knowledge, strategies, decisions, beliefs, and affects. A variety of written protocol data, including pre- and post-tests, homework assignments, and in-class assignments were collected. The instruction was presented by one of the investigators to a regular-level and an advanced-level 7th-grade class about 3 days per week for a period of 12 weeks. Among the four categories of the cognitive-metacognitive framework, which included orientation, organization, execution, and verification, the orientation category had the most important effect on students' problem-solving. Finally, it appeared that instruction was most likely to be effective when it occurs over a prolonged period of time and within the context of regular day-to-day mathematics instruction. (Author/YP)
