ab: Summary: Constraints define domains, specifying goal criteria and accepted
means of meeting them. Competency, the ability to problem solve in a
domain, depends on mastering basic constraints. Creativity follows
competency, as the product called creative must be both novel and
appropriate to its domain. In this chapter, we discuss and demonstrate
how different kinds of constraints affect early competency in
mathematics and later creativity in composition. Applications of our
constraint model to other do mains are also suggested.
