14
HOLT, RINEHART AND WINSTON P SYCHOLOGY PRINCIPLES IN PRACTICE 14 Chapter 8 What are Algorithms and Heuristics Algorithms: a specific procedure that, when used properly and in the right circumstances, will always lead to the solution of a problem. Ex: formulas. Heuristics: rules of thumb that often, but not always, help us find the solution to a problem. They are shortcuts. Ex: C_ _ FF (cliff)

15
HOLT, RINEHART AND WINSTON P SYCHOLOGY PRINCIPLES IN PRACTICE Problem Solving Methods: 9’oclock partners Trial/Error Difference Reduction Means-End Analysis Working Backward Analogies 15 Chapter 8

16
HOLT, RINEHART AND WINSTON P SYCHOLOGY PRINCIPLES IN PRACTICE What is Insight/Incubation? Insight: coming to understanding suddenly incubation effect: When we arrive at the solution to a problem when we have not been consciously working on the problem. Ex: taking a break from math problem then suddenly coming up with the solution. 16 Chapter 8

17
HOLT, RINEHART AND WINSTON P SYCHOLOGY PRINCIPLES IN PRACTICE 17 Chapter 8 mental set: the tendency to respond to a new problem with an approach that was successfully used with similar problems. Can sometimes solve a problem, can sometimes cause a problem functional fixedness: is the tendency to think of an object as being useful only for the function that the object is usually used for. What are some obstacles to solving Problems

18
HOLT, RINEHART AND WINSTON P SYCHOLOGY PRINCIPLES IN PRACTICE 18 Chapter 8 What is meant by creativity and problem solving? (popcorn) convergent thinking: though is limited to available facts, one tries to narrow thinking to find the single best solution. divergent thinking: one associates more freely to the various elements of a problem. One follows leads that run in various directions; perhaps one that will lead to the solution unexpectedly.

19
HOLT, RINEHART AND WINSTON P SYCHOLOGY PRINCIPLES IN PRACTICE 19 Chapter 8 Question: What steps can be used to solve problems? THE ABCDEs OF PROBLEM SOLVING A ssess the problem B rainstorm approaches to the problem C hoose the approach that seems most likely to work D o it – try the most likely approach E valuate the results Section 2: Problem Solving
