The Role of Cognitive and Mathematical Structures in Problem Solving Process

Our research group is interested in studying the cognitive role of mathematical aesthetics and strategic choices of problem solving solution methods and the relational role of item discrimination and difficulty. We examine how problem solvers’ behavior might be manipulated or altered by a simple modification of problem structures.
