Problem-solving processes should extend beyond mere working problems by type where students are provided algorithmic approaches to fit situations (e.g., rate, mixture, coin, investment, work) since reducing these typical problem situations to "algorithmic processing" is counter-productive relative to higher-level problem-solving goals (NCTM, 1989,1991, 1996). By incorporating technological tools (CABRI Geometry II, spreadsheets, and graphing calculators) coupled with the problem solving principles espoused by George Polya (famous mathematician and teacher of mathematics and mathematics teachers), secondary school algebra problems can be taught as recommended by the NCTM curriculum standards to appropriately meet recommended problem-solving goals. Even typical problems can therefore be used to expose students to multiple problem-solving approaches that extend understanding and meta-cognitive abilities.
