Yeap, B. H., & Berinderjeet Kaur. (2000). Exploring the relationship between mathematical problem posing and problem solving, type of task and grade level. In J. Ee, Berinderjeet Kaur, N. H.

This paper focuses on one aspect of an investigation into children's mathematical problem posing. All the children in Primary 3 and Primary 5 in three primary schools were asked to attempt a problem-solving test as well as to write mathematics word problems. The children's responses to the problem-posing test were initially classified as solvable and unsolvable problems. Subsequently, the solvable problems were further analyzed to obtain an index of problem complexity. The framework of analysis is modified from a previously suggested one (Silver & Cai, 1996) based on possible situations in arithmetic word problems (Marshall, 1995). This paper aims to investigate the complexity of problems posed by children of different ages and problem-solving ability when given different problem-posing tasks.
