Los problemas resueltos en textos universitarios de física
This study presents a description of Physics university solved problems textbooks. The aim is to make a characterisation of authors’ treatment of the presentation and resolution of these problems and to investigate its congruity with an investigation model of problem solving.
From the analysis of the results it comes out that a presentation of the problematic situation as a closed problem predominates in the sample. Also basic problem-solving processes are not explicit and analysis of results is limited. It is concluded that treatment of solved problems textbooks as examples presents weak coherence with a scientific conception of problem solving.
