An Investigation into the Creative Problem Solving Skills of Gifted Students

Year 2017, Volume 4, Issue 1, 1 - 12, 15.04.2017

Abstract

In the Turkish education system, it is aimed to educate gifted students in particular, as investigative and inquisitive individuals who have the ability to think critically and creatively. In this respect, the creative problem solving abilities of 21 students, studying at Balıkesir Sciences and Arts Center in the second semester of the academic year 2013/14, identified as gifted by the Counseling and Research Center (CRC) and who were considered appropriate for taking mathematics courses at the sciences and arts center, were examined. The research was carried out using qualitative research methods, within the framework of a content analysis model.
