Self-explanations: How students study and use examples in learning to solve problems

M Chi

The Poor students, in contrast, hardly gained any additional components to what they already knew (0.25 new components, see Table 4 , 3rd row).  ...  This is consistent with what is generally found in the literature (see Brown, Bransford, Ferrara, & Campione, 1983) . They seem to detect accurately when they do and do not understand.  ...  We believe that the "some other way" that students learn is via generating and completing explanations.  ...

Students' epistemological framing in quantum mechanics problem solving

Bahar Modir, John D. Thompson, Eleanor C. Sayre
2017 Physical Review Physics Education Research  
Students' difficulties in quantum mechanics may be the result of unproductive framing and not a fundamental inability to solve the problems or misconceptions about physics content.  ...  We observed groups of students solving quantum mechanics problems in an upper-division physics course.  ...  Students' perceptions of the problem context affect their framing of what subset of their knowledge to activate.  ...

Everyday Problem Solving in Engineering: Lessons for Engineering Educators

David Jonassen, Johannes Strobel, Chwee Beng Lee
2006 Journal of Engineering Education  
That doesn't work in the real world. Failure is a mechanism for learning to do better.  Establish clear minimum criteria for meeting the design challenge.  ...  With each set of design decisions, the mode becomes more elaborate as the problem space becomes more circumscribed. The final decision is when does the design satisfice?  ...  Students feel a sense of pride when they match most of the factors that are presented in the text.  ...

Supporting creativity in problem solving environments

Marc Vass, John M. Carroll, Clifford A. Shaffer
2002 Proceedings of the fourth conference on Creativity & cognition - C&C '02  
This paper combines flow theory, the systems model of creativity, and a newly developed workflow of problem solving to produce a theory of the creative problem solving user, WorkFlow.  ...  It extends the definition of usability to include creativity and identifies key areas and methods for the support of creativity in problem solving.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We would like to thank the PSE group at Virginia Tech and the students of CS 5724 and CS 6724 for their many helpful comments and suggestions.  ...

Extending problem-solving procedures through reflection

John R. Anderson, Jon M. Fincham
2014 Cognitive Psychology  
The ACT-R model predicts the activity in the RLPFC and other regions associated with its other cognitive modules (e.g., vision, retrieval).  ...  The model assumes that participants can reflect on declarative representations of the steps of their problem-solving procedures.  ...  We have gathered verbal protocols and while they can indicate the method the student uses to solve the problem, they do not indicate what the mental processes are.  ...

Problem solving in Chinese mathematics education: research and practice

Jinfa Cai, Bikai Nie
2007 ZDM: Mathematics Education  
Nevertheless, these problem-solving activities should be useful references for helping students make sense of mathematics.  ...  In discussing problem-solving research from four perspectives, it is found that the research in China has been much more content and experience-based than cognitive and empirical-based.  ...  However, authors are the ones responsible for any errors.  ...
