The purpose of this research in sixth grade children's solution of verbal problems in arithmetic is to investigate the mental processes that lie back of pupils' answers in arithmetic. That is, how do pupils solve verbal problems in arithmetic? The investigation involves several related problems such as; to what extent is the pupils' method of solution influenced by irrelevant data, cues, details, and numbers used in a problem?
