|Greg Gay, Learning Disabilities Resource Community (LDRC), University of Toronto|
|Find out about your learning style by solving challenging arithmetic, logic, and mathematical story problems. Puzzles include analogy exercises which reveal our abilities to infer, map meaning, classify, and alter knowledge in the face of novel learning; and to selectively encode, selectively combine, and conceptually project information. With notes on Robert Sternberg performance components and knowledge acquisition components, and on Romiszowski's "expanded skill cycle," Problem Solving is one of ten modules which include metacognition, learning styles, memory, and creativity.
