Abstract

This article examines the Solver Learning Environment and anchored instruction on mathematical word problem-solving. To collect data, a teaching experiment was arranged in 1996 at the Kaukajärvi School in the city of Tampere, Finland. The participants of the study (N=66) were fifteen years old. Several tests were arranged to measure the mathematical word problemsolving skills of the pupils and to evaluate their mathematical abilities. The pupils' attitudes towards mathematics, mathematical word problem-solving, information technology, and the environment used in the teaching experiment were also measured. In this paper, we present some ideas and the pupils' attitudes towards the anchored instruction utilised in the Solver Learning Environment.
