Abstract: | This thesis aims to contribute to a deeper understanding of the relationship between problem-solving strategies and success in mathematical problem solving. In its introductory part, it pursues and describes the term strategy in mathematics and discusses its relationship to the method and algorithm concepts. Through these concepts, we identify three decision-making levels in the problem-solving process. The first two parts of this thesis are two different studies analysing how students’ proble... more |
