Ends-In-View Problems

English, Lyn D. & Lesh, Richard A. (2003) Ends-In-View Problems. In Lesh, Richard A. & Doerr, Helen (Eds.) Beyond constructivism: Models and Modeling Perspectives on Mathematics Problem Solving, Learning, and Teaching. Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Mahwah, N.J., pp. 297-316.


The purpose of this chapter is to examine these ends-in-view problems and to demonstrate how they can provide powerful learning experiences for students.The problems that are described in this chapter are classified according to the type of product that is to be developed and the nature of the ends-in-view that apply to each. Such products include tools (e.g., models, plans, and designs),constructions (e.g., complex artifacts, cases, and assessments), and problems(i.e., problems that are posed, questions that are asked, or hypotheses that are tobe tested). We first consider some general features of these problems and thentake a closer look at the various types of products. In the second part of thechapter we examine some different examples of ends-in-view problems, onesthat are based on the domain of data handling. The data-handling examplesillustrate how the important ideas and processes within a domain can be fosteredthrough ends-in-view problems.

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.
