Within an increasingly multimedia focused society, the use of external representations in learning, teaching and communication has increased dramatically. Whether in the classroom, university or workplace, there is a growing requirement to use and interpret a large variety of external representational forms and tools for knowledge acquisition, problem solving, and to communicate with others. Use of Representations in Reasoning and Problem Solving brings together contributions from some of the world’s leading researchers in educational and instructional psychology, instructional design, and mathematics and science education to document the role which external representations play in our understanding, learning and communication. Traditional research has focused on the distinction between verbal and non-verbal representations, and the way they are processed, encoded and stored by different cognitive systems. The contributions here challenge these research findings and address the ambiguity about how these two cognitive systems interact, arguing that the classical distinction between textual and pictorial representations has become less prominent. The contributions in this book explore: how we can theorise the relationship between processing internal and external representations what perceptual and cognitive restraints can affect the use of external representations how individual differences affect the use of external representations how we can combine external representations to maximise their impact how we can adapt representational tools for individual differences. Using empirical research findings to take a fresh look at the processes which take place when learning via external representations, this book is essential reading for all those undertaking postgraduate study and research in the fields of educational and instructional psychology, instructional design and mathematics and science education.

Problem solving and reasoning are students' processes of actively applying what they know to new problems from diverse areas of mathematics. Knowing a variety of mathematical ideas is insufficient unless students can draw on, integrate, and use them to solve challenging, complex problems. The Navigating through Problem Solving and Reasoning books for grades 3-6 present hands-on investigations that nurture reasoning and problem-solving strategies in each of the upper elementary grades. In investigations for grade 3, children reason about place value by making and using pedometers, understand related changes in two quntities by exploring parade formations for thirty-six marchers, and analyze data by devising rules for earning reading certificates. Students apply mathematical ideas from the five main content areas-number, algebra, geometry, measurement, and data analysis. As they work, they infer, generalize, reason by analogy, recognize relationships, and make representations, and they also guess, check, and revise and verify their results.

This popular book shows students how to increase their power to analyze problems and comprehend what they read using the Think Aloud Pair Problem Solving [TAPPS] method. First it outlines and illustrates the method that good problem solvers use in attacking complex ideas. Then it provides practice in applying this method to a variety of comprehension and reasoning questions, presented in easy-to-follow steps. As students work through the book they will see a steady improvement in their analytical thinking skills and become smarter, more effective, and more confident problem solvers. Not only can using the TAPPS method assist students in achieving higher scores on tests commonly used for college and job selection, it teaches that problem solving can be fun and social, and that intelligence can be taught. Changes in the Seventh Edition: New chapter on "open-ended" problem solving that includes inductive and deductive reasoning; extended recommendations to teachers, parents, and tutors about how to use TAPPS instructionally; Companion Website with PowerPoint slides, reading lists with links, and additional problems.

Have you ever wondered why students too often have only a rudimentary understanding of mathematics, why even rich and exciting hands-on learning does not always result in "real" learning of new concepts? The answer lies in whether students have actually learned mathematical concepts, rather than merely memorizing facts and formulas. Concept-Rich Mathematics Instruction is based on the constructivist view that concepts are not simply facts to be memorized and later recalled, but rather knowledge that learners develop through an active process of adapting to new experiences. The teacher's role is critical in this process. When teachers prompt students to reflect on their experiences and report and answer questions verbally, students must re-examine and even revise their concepts of reality. Meir Ben-Hur offers expert guidance on all aspects of Concept-Rich Mathematics Instruction, including * Identifying the core concepts of the mathematics curriculum. * Planning instructional sequences that build upon concepts that students already understand. * Designing learning experiences that provoke thoughtful discussions about new concepts and prepare students to apply these concepts on their own. * Identifying student errors, particularly those caused by preconceptions, as important sources of information and as key instructional tools. * Conducting classroom dialogues that are rich in alternative representations. * Using a variety of formative assessment methods to reveal the state of students' learning. * Incorporating problem-solving activities that provoke cognitive dissonance and enhance students' cognitive competence. Concept-Rich Mathematics Instruction is grounded in the belief that all students can learn to think mathematically and solve challenging problems. If you're looking for a powerful way to improve students' performance in mathematics and move closer to fulfilling the NCTM standards, look no further: this approach provides the building blocks for constructing a first-class mathematics program.

Distributed and multi-agent systems are becoming more and more the focus of attention in artificial intelligence research and have already found their way into many practical applications. An important prerequisite for their success is an ability to flexibly adapt their behavior via intelligent cooperation. Successful reasoning about and within a multi-agent system is therefore paramount to achieve intelligent behavior. Distributed Constraint Satisfaction Problems (DCSPs) and Distributed Constraint Optimization (minimization) Problems (DCOPs) are perhaps ubiquitous in distributed systems in dynamic environments. Many important problems in distributed environments and systems, such as action coordination, task scheduling and resource allocation, can be formulated and solved as DCSPs and DCOPs. Therefore, techniques for solving DCSPs and DCOPs as well as strategies for automated reasoning in distributed systems are indispensable tools in the research areas of distributed and multi-agent systems. They also provide promising frameworks to deal with the increasingly diverse range of distributed real world problems emerging from the fast evolution of communication technologies. The volume is divided in two parts. One part contains papers on distributed constraint problems in multi-agent systems. The other part presents papers on Agents and Automated Reasoning.
