Examining Young Students' Problem Scoping in Engineering Design.Watkins, Jessica.
Hammer, David (David M.)
Problem scoping—determining the nature and boundaries of a problem—is an essential aspect of the engineering design process. Some studies from engineering education suggest that beginning students tend to skip problem scoping or oversimplify a problem. However, the ways these studies often characterize students' problem scoping often do not reflect the complexity found in experts' designing and re... read more
