This survey book reviews four interrelated areas: (i) the relevance of heuristics in problem-solving approaches – why they are important and what research tells us about their use; (ii) the need to characterize and foster creative problem-solving approaches – what type of heuristics helps learners devise and practice creative solutions; (iii) the importance that learners formulate and pursue their own problems; and iv) the role played by the use of both multiple-purpose and ad hoc mathematical action types of technologies in problem-solving contexts – what ways of reasoning learners construct when they rely on the use of digital technologies, and how technology and technology approaches can be reconciled.

A recreational-and-problem-solving math book, CHRISTmaths: A Creative Problem Solving Math Book attempts to bring together the joy (or spirit) of Christmas and the spirit (or joy) of mathematics. Looking at topics linking Mathematics and Christmas—what the queen of the sciences and the king of the public holidays have in common—CHRISTmaths will not only appeal to a Christmas or Christian audience, but also to any problem solvers who enjoy mathematics recreationally. CHRISTmaths should appeal to • creative problem solvers who are bored by drill-and-kill math titles, and who desire to get an intellectual kick out of solving non-routine questions; • mathletes who long for some creative mathematical problem solving to tickle their mathematical bones. CHRISTmaths hopes to give readers the opportunity to experience the Ah, Aha! and Ha Ha of Mathematics. Contents Preface Biodata of 25 B.C. and A.D. Are You Christmas-Literate?
