Question: Can using writing in remedial college math help improve problem solving skills?

Answer: “Using writing in remedial math classes helped college students attain and improve their problem- solving skills.” M Pallman, 1983, p. 430.

Comment; Doesn’t say what types of writing occurred, but I’ve read articles in which students learned to write types of problems that they later solved, improving problem-solving skills. RayS.
