ab: Summary: Constructs such as fluency, flexibility, originality, and
elaboration have been accepted as integral components of creativity. In
this chapter, the authors discuss affect as it relates to the
production of creative outcomes in mathematical problem solving
episodes. The saliency of affect in creativity cannot be
underestimated, as problem solvers require an appropriate state of mind
in order to be maximally productive in creative endeavors. Attention is
invested in commonly accepted sub-constructs of affect such as anxiety,
aspiration(s), attitude, interest, and locus of control, self-efficacy,
self-esteem, and value. A new sub-construct of creativity that is
germane and instrumental to the production of creative outcomes is
called iconoclasm and it is discussed in the context of mathematical
problem solving episodes.
