ab: Summary: This paper justifies the need for, and offers some suggestions on,
the selection and implementation of mathematical problems known as
dynamic solution exercises (DSEs). The intent of this article is to
help provide insight into how mathematics teachers can go about making
“vertical articulation" a cooperative and tangible part of the
mathematics curriculum. A sample dynamic solution exercise is provided
based on research at Metropolitan Community College in Omaha, Nebraska.
Some strategies for selecting and building a DSE instructional
environment are included. (ERIC)
