Abstract only: A central theme of this volume is that learning with understanding occurs when problems are posed that are just within students’ reach, allowing them to struggle to find solutions. If we are to provide worthwhile problem-solving experiences for ALL students in the classroom, we must pay particular attention to the needs of exceptional students. These students include those with learning difficulties and those who are gifted in mathematics. In order to achieve this goal, we need to understand the characteristics of exceptional students and employ strategies that will engage them productively in problem-solving tasks.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
