Abstract
Problem
solving
is
acknowledged
as an
important
part
of the
mathematics
curriculum
for
students
in the
United
States
, but
evidence
suggests
that
even
students
who
are
successful
in
mathematics
class
may
not be
good
problem
solvers
. This
study
analyzed
the
U.S
.
publicuse
data
file
from the
2003
Program
for
International
Student
Assessment
(PISA)
, to
investigate
factors
that
increase
the
relative
risk
for not
being
able
to
solve
mathematics
problems
.
Low
mathematics
literacy
,
low
space
and
shape
score
,
low
change
and
relationships
score
,
low
reading
literacy
, and
low
selfefficacy
all
increased
the
relative
risk
for not
being
able
to
solve
mathematics
problems
and
routine
exercises
on
PISA
. On
average
,
students
with
low
mathematics
literacy
were
almost
three
times
more
likely
to
get
an
incorrect
answer
to an
exercise
and
about
twice
as
likely
to
get
an
incorrect
solution
to a
problem
.
Students
were
about
twice
as
likely
to
answer
problems
and
exercises
incorrectly
if
reading
literacy
was
low
, and
students
with
low
selfefficacy
were
about
one
and a
half
times
more
likely
to
answer
problems
and
exercises
incorrectly
.
Mathematics
and
reading
ability
did
not
seem
to be as
important
for
very
difficult
problems
as they were for
easier
items
on the
assessment
. The
study
suggests
that
more
than
practice
and
proficiency
with
routine
exercises
is
required
for
problem
solving
success
.
