Nobel winner explains which 29 questions are central to problem-solving in science and engineering.

We read and discuss the article "Problem-Solving Process in Science and Engineering: Guidance for Teaching and Assessment" by Price, Kim, Burkholder, Fritz, and Wieman (

Start of abstract: A primary goal of science and engineering (S&E) education is to produce good problem solvers, but how to best teach and measure the quality of problem solving remains unclear. The process is complex, multifaceted, and not fully characterized. Here, we present a detailed characterization of the S&E problem-solving process as a set of specific interlinked decisions. This framework of decisions is empirically grounded and describes the entire process.
