Process/Skill Questions

  • What is brainstorming?
  • What kinds of problems does the trial-and-error approach best solve?
  • What is accidental discovery as it relates to problem solving?
  • What type of problem-solving strategies were employed before modern production?
  • In what way have advances in technology aided problem-solving strategies?
