An Investigation Of Primary School Teachers' Problem-Solving Beliefs And Practices In Mathematics Classrooms, Judith Anne Anderson

Theses

Aims. Problem-solving approaches to teaching mathematics have been recommended in curriculum documents for some time but there is evidence to suggest that there has been limited classroom implementation both in Australia as well as overseas. This investigation explored the level of implementation of mathematical problem solving in primary classrooms in NSW. Teachers' beliefs about the role of problem solving in learning mathematics as well as their classroom practices were also investigated.
