Abstract

One of the mathematics education goals is increasing capacities of problem solving in students. In this research, summon of schemas had considered as one of the mathematics education goals for increasing new ideas in mathematical problem solving. 40 first grade girl students are selected in high school via quasi-experimental method and cluster sampling and we had shown thereby Leven and independent samples tests in meaningful level of 0.05 that summon of schemas are affective on increasing new ideas in mathematical problem solving and it made to increase of capacity of mathematical problem solving among high school students. Therefore, it seems that usage of schemas led to increase of new ideas in mathematical problem solving.

 

Keywords: Mathematics education, summon of schema, mathematical problem solving, new ideas.
