ab: A year-long teaching experiment explored the possibility of changing fourth
grader’s approaches to mathematical problem solving. A metacognitive
question-and-answer technique was used to negotiate meaning, explore
problem representation, discuss possible solution strategies, and
reflect on the problem-solving enterprise. Analysis of the transcript
data, classroom observations and childrens’ work samples revealed
that while those with most to gain and nothing to lose demonstrated the
greatest shift in approach, each child’s approach was successfully
challenged to some extend. (orig.)
