Problem Solving, Computer Technology, and Students’ Motivation in Learning Mathematics
Full Text (PDF, 165KB), PP.1-5
In recent years, more and more attentions are given to developing problem solving skills and using computer technology in the teaching and learning of mathematics. Case studies, independent projects, and examples of applications of mathematics are used more and more frequently in mathematics classes in order to enhance students’ development in mathematical thinking and problem solving skills. Two examples of such studies are presented in this paper.
