Foong, P. Y. (1990, July). A taxonomy of mathematical problem solving behaviours. Paper presented at the 13th Biennial Conference of the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers “Mathematical turning points: Strategies for the 1990s”, Hobart, Australia.
Abstract: 
The taxonomy described in this paper was developed from a research that had its major objective the investigation of the process of mathematical problem solving in terms of definable behaviours. The taxonomy was developed for use as an instrument to classify and encode behaviours in their sequence of observed occurrence during the process of mathematical problem solving. It formed the basis of a behavioural
analysis framework formulated in the research to examine the problem solving protocols of individuals for comprehensive information about the problem solving process itself, the individual differences in the
behaviours of subjects and the strategies applied by each in dealing with the different tasks used in the study.
