Problem solving in mathematics education. (English)
ICME-13 Topical Surveys. Cham: Springer (ISBN 978-3-319-40729-6/pbk; 978-3-319-40730-2/ebook). vii, 39~p. open access (2016).
Publisher’s description: This survey book reviews four interrelated areas: (i) the relevance of heuristics in problem-solving approaches ‒ why they are important and what research tells us about their use; (ii) the need to characterize and foster creative problem-solving approaches ‒ what type of heuristics helps learners devise and practice creative solutions; (iii) the importance that learners formulate and pursue their own problems; and iv) the role played by the use of both multiple-purpose and ad hoc mathematical action types of technologies in problem-solving contexts ‒ what ways of reasoning learners construct when they rely on the use of digital technologies, and how technology and technology approaches can be reconciled.
