There is a growing consensus among many educators that the goals of teaching and learning mathematics are to help students solve real-life problems, participate intelligently in daily affairs, and prepare them for jobs (Gardiner, 1994; Roeber, 1995). These goals suggest that the role of routine procedural skills should be diminished while more emphasis ought to be placed on learners gaining conceptual insights and analytical skills that appear essential in real-life mathematical problem solving (Schoenfeld, 1993; Stenmark, 1989).

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.
