# On Teaching Problem Solving in School Mathematics.

The problem solving method is one, which involves the use of the process of problem solving or reflective thinking or reasoning. Problem solving method, as the name indicated, begins with the statement of a problem that challenges the students to find a solution.

The importance of problem-solving requires students to have that ability. Problem-solving is the ability obtained from a series of important activities in mathematics learning that can be used to.

Problem-solving is a process—an ongoing activity in which we take what we know to discover what we don't know. It involves overcoming obstacles by generating hypo-theses, testing those predictions, and arriving at satisfactory solutions. Problem-solving involves three basic functions.

Model how to monitor and reflect on the problem-solving process. Use student thinking about a problem to develop students’ ability to monitor and reflect. 3.

Principles for teaching problem solving. Model a useful problem-solving method. Problem solving can be difficult and sometimes tedious. Show students by your example how to be patient and persistent and how to follow a structured method, such as Woods’ model described here. Articulate your method as you use it so students see the connections.

In the Hungarian mathematics education there is no explicit teaching of problem-solving strategies. The best students can abstract the strategies from the solutions of concrete problems, but for the average students it is not enough. In our article we report about a developmental research. The topic of the research was the explicit teaching of two basic strategies (forward method, backward.

Teaching Problem Solving To develop into expert problem solvers, students must first encounter problems that engage them and give them opportunities to develop the skills they need to learn. Through project-based learning, students gain direct experience solving problems. The types of problems that benefit students the most are the ones that.
