Abstract: 
This review of the research literature on difficulties with problem solving in mathematics shows us that problem solving in mathematics is a complex process which requires an individual who is engaged in a mathematical task to coordinate and manage
domain-spenfic and domain-general pieces of knowledge. It also suggests that (i) the
mathematics content level of the problems which students at different year levels of
schooling will be able to solve successfully and (ii) the Merent strategies or heuristics
which students at different year levels use to solve the same mathematical problems
must govern the design of problem-solving curricula at the various year levels of
schooling.
